Sister It Was Better If You Had Not Been Born

Sister It Was Better If You Had Not Been Born, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
the journey
of your life
begins on
this bed of
thorns .
here today
tomorrow
gone ...
to beg
solicit
you were
spawned
create more
beggars
the cosmic
cycle of produce
manufacture
no new dawn
be forewarned
you could have
been lucky if
only you were
stillborn .

a beggar shoots beggar porn..
poetizing your pain timeworn
dark daisies for your death
we mourn...

If You Are A Beggar You Have Nothing To Lose

If You Are A Beggar You Have Nothing To Lose, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
you are born to abuse
if you are a beggar
you are the victim
accused beggars hardly
make news if you
fell of the train
what you have already
lost you cant lose
broken battered limbs
hanging loose ..nameless
faces as masks .. infused
laid back society throws a
few coins. .bemused ..
when they die a numbered
toe in a common municipal
grave pushed in without shoes
if uncircumcised than cremated
in ones and twos.. religion hardly
matters for these victims of humanity
mortal memories blood sweat sinews
what aadhar card ..who they are
what they are .. no one has any clue
but yes they dont die of dengue
chikungunya typhoid or bird flu

You Tube Nursery Rhymes At Her Finger Tips

You Tube Nursery Rhymes At Her Finger Tips, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
what she likes
she listens what
she dont like
she will let it
slip..life is nothing
but a rapidly moving
comic strip..moments
you simply cannot snip
looming larger than life
as memories of lost
illusions lost friendship
beneath the flesh of
the soul..likes naked
hope if you strip..moving
backward forward while
you skip..a time machine
what a trip.. teardrops
frozen icicles .. as they
drip...thunderstorm
in a sip,..between the
cup and the lip ..

My Camera Shames Me With Every Frame I Take

My Camera Shames Me With Every Frame I Take, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
no my hands
dont shake
no my heart
does not break
clinically i shoot
rob souls ..their
pain their aches
many fakes
but some pictures
do keep me awake
this poets thirst
words fail only
pictures slake
god must have
been crazy to
make all this
for eternity's sake
teardrops on the
soul of humanity
evasive snowflakes
mud cakes ,,thoughts
opaque ..did god make
this world accidentally
or was it his
first mistake

Main Musalman Hoon

Main Musalman Hoon, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
seeda sada
insan hoon
beshak
garib hoon
kisi ka
ghulam
nahi hoon
waqt ki
badalti dhara
dekh kar
pareshan
zaroor hoon

God I Hate You Sometimes

God I Hate You Sometimes, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

for not giving me death
i asked you each time ,,,
an accidental birth my only crime ,,
as i crawl rise fall in my prime
step less ladder i climb..
the call of the minaret
one end at the other end
the temple bells chime
