The Next Thing - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Thus am placed to the love adjacent
Desires fulfilled, wishes come true
Inventiveness accomplished,
Buried the past,
Lo! The bigger change,
‘We' have become like ‘Them';
With blessedness visited, in dreams
Succor. Future became visible
Gurus' prophesies have ‘proved'.
Hale, O hale, salute the long arm,
Unto yourself in the mirror,
Walk out and exhale, -candored amnesia.
What next?
I wrote on the air
With my right finger and with my left
Hand, on my chest.
What next if everything is done,
What next if I become like you?
