Ten Pounds Of Life - Poem by Usman Hanif

Ten pounds of life
And all ten lost
No life left
to weigh upon...

Ten pounds of life
five lost
lifeless, dingy
dragged along
with the remaining five
like ten on five

Ten pounds of life
equals ten pounds
of nothingness
shaped into humanity
To weigh upon
The only possession
of the walking bulk
of ten pounds...
