Indeed - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Indeed, we know the awared,
Topped the hill's sand, carved the snow
Checkered reality, we brought down the stream
Consciousness of misfortunes counted.
We accepted all ills, history taught us
Before us is spread, nascent victories, retreats.
What a beginning, now we make,
Instead, reinventing the lost genres of gone,
Instead, our beacons behind than in front
Though lighted, we grope in the dark.
O! Legacy of the written word, our memory
Stronger than our vision, our past brighter,
Therefore, one step forward, two steps back.
Of your ‘likes', I am sick
Would you tender a better way to understand,
Or I post, of having done, a pole of light.
Quote lies, in surreal ‘escape',
Quilt so small, neither covers feet nor head.
When all is done, what else remain
That I follow the path, right, at least.
