Who Doesn'T Want To... - Poem by Asma Khan

Who doesn't want to die?
The one who hasn't lived yet
seen death just as a threat

Who doesn't want to leave?
The one who hasn't died yet
life has come to meet him in a bet

Who doesn't want to rest?
The one who hasn't lifted his feathers yet
all roads in his way are set

Who doesn't want to go?
The one who hasn't come around
neither flown nor tested the ground

Who doesn't want to love?
The one who hasn't tasted life
his heart is safe from the destiny's knife

Who doesn't want to hate?
The one who spent all his life in love's wait
yet his heart is chewed by the cruel fate

Topic(s) of this poem: life
