After Mumbai Massacre: Next Is What? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Poem By Mahfooz Ali

Blind to fearful faces,
the blood on hands
If only mind were slates,
able to be wiped
clear,
never to think again
Humour no longer yellow,
but pitch black
Laughter a heartless clang,
no longer a melodious song
If ever the free sun, I see again, I will
surely know that ignorance truly is bliss.

I Love My Family So Much.

To be a part of a family like mine
is so divine
where love is shown
hurt is shared

Open Them

Open them, open them
let the light shine,
Release the binds
of chains and twine.

On The Brink Of.

A wicked way the wind blows strong,
tighten the craft and strengthen the tie.
Ripping the sheets from the line does the
wind torment?

Because I Knew

I remember,
as a very young child mom's loving touch.
It had a delightfully delicious feel of warmth
and security upon my senses.

Why I Am Writing This?

Have you ever wonder why things change?
Why minutes are minutes,
or why hours are hours?
Have you ever wondered?

Thank You, Father

Fathers hold you when you have bad dreams
And they comfort you when all is lost it seems.
Fathers teach you to dribble a basketball and shoot a free throw
And they lead you as you grow.
