One Among Them

When words strangle your soul
The restlessness recrudesces on the forehead
I become lost somewhere deep in me
As if I have been pushed from the ship to drown in the sea
I want to see the bottom
where the words are scratching my counscious

The world will allure you to it’s lies
But only here we can also find the truth
Every age has been a test for humanity
Why then we should curse our times?
My words take different shapes inside
Sometimes forms questions and sometimes answers
But what I find is that they are relative
Changes their size and weight with the emotions

Only His words are absolute, the Lord of all ages
We only see a drop of life in His infinite ocean of creations
He guides whom He wills
I pray for myself to be one among them



BLANK PAGES

Lying there on the blank pages
Words struggling inside to speak up
But I excuse myself as a common voice
Afraid, who will accept my lines?
so, the blankness will remain there
Untill I would allow the world to overpower me


Great ones also got the title of “fool”
By then fools of the world
The truth infact has to struggle with lies
For one day to break the walls to prevail
In between, I remain a common man
Afraid to walk in the shade of the truth
And keep myself burning in the fire of lies
They spread the injustice and I close my eyes
Building only the walls of my house more stronger
to hide from what is happening outside
This is the part of same injustice deep embedded in me
what would I expect for my tounge to utter?
When instead of being a slave of GOD
Became the slave of the world
to lie on the same blank pages

I Found What I Am

I finally found what I am
A corpse of tomorrow
Shrouded in a white cloth

I finally found what I am
A life that has to die

So what am I boasting about?
what?
money, power and fame
strength, beauty and authority
or the relationships in the world
Am I proud of these thing
These lies
which will depart me soon
A dead leaves without them

nothing is absolute that I see
as evident from the past
where are they who came before me
I got carried away in the lights of the world
I forgot who I was
I deceived my eyes
in the lies
I never realized my existence
I sinned, out of my ignorance
As I never realized
I also have to die

I turn to you
O Allah!
….to be continued

Famous

I also wanted to become famous
But among whom?
the ones who do not even know you
they just follow a trend
the investors have invented
for the current season
No
I don’t want such fame
I don’t want to become even known
even to the single one of them

even if the truth is unrecognizable
I will follow it
Not those advertised lies on the screens
And I will become famous
if not in the world
but surely before my Lord

ATTRACTIVE BUT UGLY

I waited
for some time
scambling the words in the brain
but always came short
a fort built around the heart
was not letting me go
to travel beyond the walls of the world
felt only what I saw in the cage
writing their lines on the page
freedom was a lie
mouths were speaking big and hands were folded
lies were creatively molded
fixing into ongoing series of brands
ones who withstood got canned
the majority were living in the dreamland
crunched and limited
becoming the new lifestyle
they wore gorgeously but remained faceless
lips were buzzing like the mosquitoes
what else could have happened
when hearts were stranded
face never depicted the person he was
glowing outside but tanned inside

so were my words
reading beautiful but felt little
like the world around
attractive but ugly
