Else All Is Dark – A Poem Written by Muhammad Shanazar

Else All Is Dark

Written by Muhammad Shanazar

 

Whether it is a town of poesy,
Or a valley surrounded with thoughts,
My pangs are my companions,
They dwell with me always.

Far away who is my own,
When calls me and sends me messages,
The words restore the light of my eyes,
But even then I don’t know,
Why my heart becomes a thirsty ocean.

I often come out from my abode
In the chase of happiness,
Each voice instills a sweet song into my ears,
And I feel each route leading me to the destination,
But in the eve I return with empty hands.

My life is a worn out tale, written on
The crinkled page of my own countenance,
And I sitting in the mid of yard
Being a sole listener, narrate it only to myself.

Till yesterday I had so sweet memories,
They played seek and hide in the oasis of my mind,
But it is true today, in the thick forest of odium,
The fierce dogs snatched them away,
Indeed they were my real sole asset.

Now after a long time my memories have returned
As if someone released them from the bloody jaws,
I cannot recognize them as they all are gored,
As if they have taken a bath in their own blood,
I stand here forlorn and perplexed
Whether I should own or disown them all,
After all they are mine.

Whether it is a town of poesy,
Or a valley surrounded with thoughts,
My pangs are my companions
They dwell with me always.
Only the one who is my own,
When calls me and sends me messages,
The words restore the light of my eyes,
And brighten my mind, else all is dark.
