Reflection

My garden of delight, variously hued,
Some eager dolts often invade it,
They want to be heroes
Victorious in battles.
They will soon trample the grass,
Uproot flowerbeds,
Slay imagined foes and demons
With their shiny swords.
Years ago,
I would have been one of them,
I am wiser now.
These invaders
And their demons roaming about
Do not bother me.
Those that hide within me
Scare me -
My fears and doubts;
These I cannot see with my eyes.

Meri duniya rung-barangi khushi se bahri hui hai Lakin meri bev-koofi un ko machalti hai (Soni sahib, no affront intended. Delete it at your pleasure...)
