A Common Man's Prayer

Poem By Mohammad Akmal Nazir

I pray you to take me to that height,
From where fall is not possible,
But I know my worth,
Being a human being I am the victim of
All those infirmities which a comman man has,
Jealousy, prejudice, hatred, anger, and greed,
inhabit my mind,
I confess my sin yet I am not strong enough
To stay away from them,
O Lord, forgive my sin,
And help me attain that height of spiritual glory,
From where fall is not possible.

*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 Bitter Truth

The life will remain the same,
You will remain the same,
They will remain the same,
The world will remain the same

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.
