I

hunger: a mind numbing havoc
love: nihilism anti-dote
peace: presumption of innocence
hate: intolerance incarnate

aray kahaaN bhagtay ho
kahaaN layjatay hou dost
souch ki qaid maiN youN hum ko?

let's not die in vain again
mur ker jo na houN zindah
tou yeh kya baat hui?

fervors of a feverish faith.
lost forever in the desert
of the word's un-harnessed journeys
in search of some lost fisherman.

II

possess nothing personal
body, words--drained, bereft
emotions, gestures, letters

remnant of Time-ravages

let us harness the halo
of words, spectrum, aura
do not fear those angels, come
enliven the word-magic
succumb to their allure of
joy, hurt, mirth, indignation.
protecting the flanks
from imbecilic march

III

write, write and re-write those words
lost in River Time's flow
words nursing fervent desires
of folks blurred in Time Fog

write, you must! in that encryption
write, you must! in that emotion
write, you must! in that language
spoken sans comprehension
                                 write!
of concerning, concerting thoughts
that melt down cobwebs of hatred
someone, somewhere, someday will read.

fervours of a feverish faith.
lost forever in the desert
of the word's un-harnessed journeys
in search of some lost fisherman.
