a muslim
begs from
a muslim
as he begs
from christain
or a hindu
begging
a curse on
humanity
kills the soul
of mankind
it is true
the milk
of human
kindness
has
curdled
all through
pain
on the streets
forever
bestrewed
fate has
bestowed
out of the blue
in more ways
than him
one who
offers
charity
is a beggar too

Man Child in a Zoo

Man Child in a Zoo, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. He is a man child cub in a zoo
endangered specie its true
on the verge of extinction
a thought hackneyed but new
with his back to the world
a world of hate he left behind
a world of sorrow and suffering
he outgrew
now he eats only what
he can chew
his ancestors once upon a time
roamed the wilds
till evolution charged their intellect
they became from apes
men categorized as Christians Muslims and Jews
assorted races Buddhist Sikhs Parsis Jains Hindus
using religion as a weapon
their own kind without impunity
they mercilessly slew
political powerplay
man destroying man
a heady intoxicating brew
phew
a god who created them
they killed on the cross
now by killing
those that did not kill him
pay off their forefathers
unpaid dues
suicide bombers
misplaced martyrdom
proselytizing the human soul
with any available excuse
Justice as a precondition
to Peace and Freedom
The only solution
for a global truce

Behnoo ko Sakina (a.s.) ki duaoon ka asr dey

Mehfooz rahain aisee khawateen kat parday
Gham koee na dey hum ko siwa’ay gham-e-Shabbir(a.s.)
Shabbir (a.s.) ka gham baat raha hai to idhar day

an alcoholic stupor
blocked my way
now with shadows
broken dolls
as dreams
she loves
to play
if i could
turn the clock
back
a thought
that plays
3 grand daughters
as my penance
as they sit
on my chest
bringing
back
my daughter
from far away
a tear drops
rolls down my
cheeks
from my dark
memories
i cant
get away
a fucked
father
on fucked
fathers day
