Who Am I? - Poem by mohammed jafer

Who am I?

I dream of a garden of peace, I am alone walking on it with a hearty smile;
When I wake up all I see are tides of darkness crawling on me like a snail,

I dream of an angel, who whispers about peace
I found is the devil, which apprehends me to please

Why I am unable to reach out the sky?
Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?

I want to break the cage of the hate around me
I want to free my soul from the omen surround me

Perhaps, finding myself in me is a hard task
May be I am someone who wears a funny mask

Alas, I lost my identity with an Aim to fly
Who am I? who am I? who am I?

All I hear is Humanity taking a humble soft ride
What I see is Cruelty in their heart’s dark side

To whom am I looking at (God) , to save my life?
He who smiles, when I walk on the sharp knife!

Yet, I prefer to live rather than die
Who am I? Who am I? Who amI?
