Someone walked away
Glancing at me
Since I have become
Weary of the life journey

With their writing, the writers
Struggled hard
While they became
The news of sacrifice

And bearing that
The pain became the life disease

Where, when, how
Life turns back
That's spent and gone

Brutality of brutal people
Reached to personal attacks
It was the result
Of my tolerance

What to say
Own blood was the opponent
I became broken
By those, who were blood
Of my heart

Oh, poet,
It is a crime and offence here
To keep even the hopes
That's why,
I have stitched my lips
I am not expressing anymore
My talent, and skill of life.
