Abdul Wahab


>>Agony of a bud


Thousands possibilities astounding and astonishing
A seed contains before it germinates or a sapling
Obtains before it becomes a tree, no one sees
The immense power in a little drop of rain
Until it assimilates with a stream of ocean
Mine, I secure in between tiny wings
As gems are in a stomach of oceanic shells

But the gust of wind
And the golden rays of sun
Are aware of what I hold
In between my tight petals
If anything is needed
That is a few drops of dew
To show my magic. to show my power
To blow away onlooker’s mind.

In this world of indifference and avoidance
While even roads cry for the sound
Of foot steps of a friend
I passionately wait
With all my love and faith
To meet with my most trusted and tested lover
Finally on one fine morning
Time peeps in
And unties my bind
What a surprise!
What a wonder!
I relieve from all the pain of negligence
When I bloom into a flower.
