Prof Niamat Ali Murtazai

Without Expectation

When eyes are filled with bright hope
And ears enjoy melodious symphony
At once breaks the strong rope
And disperses all cherished harmony.

When vines of wishes climb up a wall
Some surging storm dislikes the rise
The strong wall proves to be near to fall
All leaves and branches feel

Waves traverse long distance for meeting
But when it actually touches the shore
Slashing is the long wished for greeting
The desire of meeting is left no more.

Friends water expectations ' plant
And raise it up to the height of K-2
But when the adversities come to haunt
No claim is found to be true.

Learn to live without expectations
So that the train may move to goal
And pass through alone stations,
Dear in this way play your good role.
