RUBAB ATWAL


Childhood


I know what I have with me today
it is the most precious thing in the whole world
I even know that this beautiful road with flowers
will turn into a fragile road with intricate sands
these lively hills will become big stultifying mountains
I have realized everything I have is going to be gone someday.

    Excellent poem, very well written. At an early age and you already can see the fragile, eventual end. Good ideas. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
