~false Beauty~

Poem By Mohammad Akmal Nazir

All the pleasant adjectives,
Were hovering
around her,
Each of them wished,
To settle with her forever,
Suddenly a gust of wind came,
And swayed them away
Except one,
It was 'transient'.

Comments about ~false Beauty~

This is a great work It explains the concept of life] At a time, it glows but it fades away as time goes on.
Clever title with an ending that explains the false beauty that poens up many variations of thought, short and powerful...regards

Excellent! As the Lord truly said, 'Favour is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.' Beauty such as you've depicted is indeed false, though fair, since it is so fleeting; what we desire then is true beauty, that is more than 'skin-deep, ' nor fades with age, but grows ever more attractive like a good wine. Then again, as the Lord says, '...let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us....'

*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.
