ASIF A

White and Blue Sea Picture Postcard

AS IF A GIRL BEING ABDUCTED IS NOT ENOUGH A CRIME,

AS IF A GIRL BEING DRUGGED IS NOT ENOUGH A CRIME,

AS IF A GIRL BEING RAPED IS NOT ENOUGH A CRIME,

AS IF A GIRL BEING STRANGLED IS NOT ENOUGH A CRIME

AS IF A GIRL BEING KILLED IS NOT ENOUGH A CRIME

AS IF ALL THIS IN A TEMPLE IS NOT ENOUGH A CRIME

AS IF ONE IS NOT ENOUGH A TIME

A FEW MORE ASIFAS JUST THE SAME

THIS IS THE LAST ONE WE ALL CLAIM

WHERE HAVE WE LOST ALL THE SHAME

WHERE HAVE WE LOST ALL THE SHAME

NONE BUT OUR SELVES TO BLAME

FED OUR SOULS WITH LUSTFUL FLAMES..

NOW I AM NO MORE THAN A TALE

ALL YOU SOUGHT WAS A LITTLE FAME

WHERE HAVE YOU LOST ALL THE SHAME

I PRAY FOR A DAY MY SISTERS, MOTHER ARE SAFE,

ALIVE WITH UNBROKEN TRUST AND NEVER ENDING FAITH.

Slave

chained-elephant

A chance of a debate arise from a thought
A choice to be a foe or a friend awaits

Let the sun rise
Or before the sun,  rise

Lonely in a crowd
Or joyfully alone

Chained like an elephant
Or break free like a bird

Reduced to the rules
Or rise up beyond limits

Latter not former is the choice I make
Include not Exclude is the lesson I learned
 
Ascend above the world of forms
Or stoop so low to fearful depths
Spiral is quick, up or down
Choice is mine, willfully make.
 

Caged is a word they never understood
Asiya and Rabiya, a queen and a slave!
Slavery beyond freedom, can I comprehend
To the One or things whose message I befriend!
 

Cells in Shells


A mere moment passes by

A thought , nay thoughts come through

Why this why that, how this how that

Questions endless..



Heart or mind preferred is who

Tongue or hand , who is ahead.

Are we one , part of one body

Are we all independent beings

What if, in the weirdest thoughts

Even the cells obfuscated

Me and you, we and them 

How they think, thoughts come through

Moments pass by, never to be back

No rich no poor, moments equal moments 


Me and you , we and them 

Human cells in billions say

We have nuclei, independent

wow our shapes and wow our colours 

Beyond control, we are independent

Lest they realize, dependent

In the shell of a single human body 

Belong, poor cells,  as slaves to the body

Lest they realize, dependent

They are ,well in control.



We have brains, say the humans

We are independent, beyond control

In billions, we humans surely independent. 

wow our shapes and wow our colours

Lest they realize, lest they realize..

Moments pass by, moments pass by.

..The Fallen Bird..

2 bird

I saw you looking up into the sky

Felt as though you were about to cry..

What made you stay back till the late night

Or was it because you could really not fly

Perhaps you already had given it a try.

Didn’t try helping you, know not why

A touch of comfort before you died

is what you yearned, but we both were shy.

How was the fall,the fence was high

Hope you went in a state of joy

Bidding the babes a final good bye..

Forgot your story as the days went by

Returned to the site , and was touched by the plight

Motionless ,me for a moment and you forever

you were,No!, are beautiful, even days after death

Not a crack , or a mark on your colorful cloth

You must have had a beautiful heart, filled with faith

Sure you have fallen through a brave last flight.

Thanks for giving me a chance to help you

Return to the sand in a state of bliss you

As a queen, rest in peace you

i would now forever miss you

Never I , but it was He who helped you.!

..The King and the Kids..

images

The blowing trumpets, the glowing armors

The flowing enemies,  and the frightened subjects

Tell us , tell us oh boy, how many are they

Hundreds, hundreds is all I could say

Scare him,  beat him, how many are they

Hundreds, hundreds is all I could say

Soothe him, save him, said the King

How many are they, count of the beasts

Now i know, and it’s simply nine

Love and fear are but tools

Chose the former, they are a hundred per camel.

Served him for ten, saw him ten folds

Never a rebuke,  strike or a poke

How could i not see him while asleep or awake

This testimony, with tears I spake

Father, brother, none but a King I served.

Cried oh my bird, I’ve lost my beloved

The footsteps of the King , made up my mood

How could this little I , more even the bird

Feel the bliss, the whole kingdom deserved

I am compelled with the love you’ve bestowed

How could i ever forget the comfort you’ve shared.

My father, my uncle what a pleasure to the eyes

Where, where have you been all these years

I’m here as a slave to a King so kind

Lets go for the bargain, how shall we fund

He is yours for free, except by his choice

That’s done a deal lets move oh Zaid

Love you both , my King is more beloved

Slavery not freedom is the choice i make

I am the one , the only to be mentioned in The Book.

We together, are blessed with your grace

Enjoyed the moments we played the race

What a ride said the viewer,  no the rider said the King.

We welcomed the king with collision not coalition

Laughed aloud while he was covered in blood

Amazed when he commanded to leave us unharmed

The King could’ve crushed us with the power he owned.

Wondrous case is the conquest of the land

A day of mercy was the slogan that was heard

Pardon in power is a thing we learned

A dog and puppies were for never so cared

Wish this little I was in His kingdom so blessed

Hope the beam from this pen guides through the dark night

Till i reach the dawn of your sunlight..

The Tree and The Child

tree
Oh my little one ,such a beautiful face..
Come to me running for an embrace..
where to rushing, with such a haste.
Heedless even to share a gaze..

Many who passed have left no trace..
Missing the moments of blissful grace..
Praise thy Lord and observe the world
Listen to my voice which you never heard..
Talk to me in silence with that beautiful sound..
Serenity that envelopes is so profound..

Pelt me , prick me cut me down..
Sit, walk, lie on I will hide my wound..
Little displeasure can ever ever be found..
Fade not yourself, come in my shade..
The love I share shall never be claimed..
Thus has been taught by a Teacher so kind..
Mercy to me ,you and the whole world.
Treasure the words which he had shared
Possess the power to keep me ever consoled..
Be you His student , let the kindness be flood..
Let’s live in a world ,where love knows no bound..
