If You Will Hear Right Now - Poem by Naveed Akram

Will you believe in my sins if you heard them right now?
Sins are fourfold, sins destroy the soul as it wins, if you heard them right now.

Will damage be given to the ear when you pray?
The remains of the dying prayer begins, if you heard them right now.

I have to speak to God, and now is the time of soldiery,
I sold their ailments with vials of goblins, if you heard them right now.

Some gasp at ghosts walking above the ceiling, walking,
Tiptoeing in the mists of the house that grins, if you heard them right now.

I have to finish the clamours and rumours of a bygone age,
The sinning is wondering when there are inns, if you heard them right now.

My kingdoms are stolen from me, my princes are primroses,
But the sinning continues without my soul in pins, if you will hear right now.
