Who Is This Man? - Poem by Abdul Wahab

After hundreds
of years

from now on
when you are alone

and lonely
a poem read out to you

by some one
to refresh your sad mind

you wonder and ask
who is this man?

the first child of you when born
and you are in ecstasy

to celebrate the moment
you go to your shelve

open a book
in total surprise

you ask
whose is this poem?

when man is on mars
and you take a book

in your luggage
by chance

it slips
into the hands of aliens

after reading
few pages

they bewildered and ask
what a man he was! !

    Every poet wants to leave his words behind for generations to read. And when I am no longer I want to be proud of my words I have left behind. nice reading (Report) Reply
