Am I Lazy?

Poem By Gulam Abbas Hashmi

When the need provokes;
the body does not act.
I on the counterpart,
rest in my shell.
A long day awaits me;
the work is still,
beholding me on the stage.
The responsibility calls
am I lazy or dull?
The enquiry cries,
and helplessness strikes
the conscious sleeps.
The dignified me;
then traces, the path-
to find a corner,
and discovers a logic

Toss N Turns

Those turns you take in sleep;
in night awakes me often.
I grab you once more tight,
my dreams renew and soften.

For Me.

Somehow I did succeed;
letting my pencil, down the corner,
and start to recede.
The road of thought I ponder,

Intrusion

Summon to you -
all those hidden and pampered thoughts;
come forth and fight,
not for the world,

Final Hour (Acrostic)

Forecasted, this is to the world
In very crystal words
Nobody stays
Although, every one of us

Paradise (Acrostic)

Plunge out thy each and every wish;
at last they are summoned.
Render away all fear of sin,
Alas! the Day of Judgment comes.
