A Bitter Truth

Poem By Mohammad Akmal Nazir

The life will remain the same,
You will remain the same,
They will remain the same,
The world will remain the same
With all its beauty and grandeur,
The moon will shine brilliantly,
The stars will twinkle
With all their splendour,
The nightingales will sing in the garden,
The flowers will scatter their beauty all around,
Nature will spread Her skirt for Her nurselings,
People will celebrate Eid, Diwali and, Christmas,
Their joy will know no bound,
But ah!
I will not be there
To share this joy.

Comments about A Bitter Truth

Deep! I often dwell on this same dreary truth.
Bitter truth? I'd say the inevitable can never be bitter, under no conditions. All the worlds a stage and we are timed and timed out..nothing bitter, rather spiritual and and extension further, I believe in afterlife. Good write and well thought.
An amazing thought, and potentially frightening - were it not for faith. Beautifully done 10.

*a Humble Complaint*

You could have been more polite observing me,
Your harsh words have left
An indelible impression,
Hatred can be won by love alone,

A Busy Street

Shameless, nude always invites
To outrage her modesty,
Smooth and grey
who would not be


The blow was very cruel,
The bud could not blossom,
It died underneath,
And who cares?

*a Farmer*

Clad in shabby dress, stinks sweat,
A churlish who works day and night
In the field,
To speed up the pace of progress,

A World Of Treason

Let's see the world with an open eye,
And take it as a bivouac not destination,
Its love is false and nature sly,
It's an obstacle in the way of emancipation.
