~~~when I Was Young~~~ - Poem by AFTAB AHMAD

When i was young,
I did not know where i was.
When i wokeup from my dream
I lost half of my life,
There was nothing to say,
Nothing left for me in my life
I was left with my tears
All the ways were closed for me
Shadow also left me alone in darkness,
I was very hopeless and
Nothing was left for me,

Than i took the support of pen, i started writing,
''Now the world is around my pen and me
I have distributed my tears, darkness, aloneness
Through my poem to everybody,
Now i am known as poet aftab….''
