My Friends Please Stop Her - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

1. As an infant I didn’t know anyone,
other than My mother.
2. As a child I didn’t know anyone,
other than my sister.
3. As a youth I didn’t know anyone,
other than my beloved.
4. As a grown man I didn’t know anyone,
other than my wife.
5. As growing an older man I didn’t know anyone,
other than my daughter.
6. As an old man I didn’t know anyone,
other than my granddaughter.

Who is she?
Through a veil,
looking at me,
and rewinding the video of my life.
My friends please stop her.
I don’t want to see myself being breast fed by her.
Oh My Naughty Friends! You stopped her at No.3.
Anyway, I am thankful.
You didn’t stop her at No.4.

    Nicely articulated. The poet captures his images at different stages of his life- though, with a tinge of mischief. Amazing one. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    So wisely and cleverly penned this poem. Most interesting and amusing. Time to time a person likes mother, sister, beloved and wife as per his age and he doesn't want to see his daughter- in-law's breast feed. So nice and beautiful. Thanks for sharing.....10 (Report) Reply
