Discipline

Quaid-Uz-Zaman 1954 (Jamalpur)



Wings clipped.
Love tamed and caged. A cut flower in a showy flower vase.
Freedom chained, lacerated.
Speech trimmed , tailored and filtered thoroughly.
No excess
No little
But measure for measure.
No wilderness
No ecstasy.
Yet access to liberty not denied!

(Quaid -Uz- Zaman, Station Road , Jamalpur)
