Borrowed Life


We all have a borrowed life
To do good throughout
The life span we borrowed
From the court of almighty.

But the second borrow of life
For ill deed of a man
Is capital punishment
By the court of justice

It is truly a curse
For the time a society
Remembers till the memory
Washes out from the brain
Through the blow of time.

Borrow of life for good deed
If cursed with punishment
And second borrow needs
Is he a human being?

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
