Just Seven Years - Poem by Shahida Latif

How long time a man requires,
To get shattered the tuft of desires,
And decisions to write and erase,
Bend to Almighty God and praise,
And to extinguish life of a man,
Just a span.

How long time a man requires,
To collect the pieces of mirror,
And fragments of broken heart,
Count on fingers scattered dreams,
Or to get dried the flowing streams,
Of the eyes in form of falling tears,
Just seven years.
