The Starry Skies - Poem by Naveed Akram

The starry skies uplift me as I walk in the sleep,
Thereupon an angel ignites laughter of love,
Forcing me into a deep sleep, sloped at an angle.
We love the praise given by authorities of the world,
Judgements are despaired upon, stars glow in the night.

So scents of a jumping young man stem from the heights,
His gaze is against the light of the stars at niggardly night.
The dreams are over-powerful like supermen and superhumans,
Generals of the life stagger and swarm at the spot of awkwardness,
Filling wells of wasted water, fulfilling the bridge's designer.

A life is along the way, a life towards the harbour, a life of lending,
Like the existence of a separate star along the horizon, this way of
Dawn, this day of demand and supply in the world's makeup.
Judgements are passed by fastidious jumping men, who judge
According to the customs of their country this side of town.
