Treasure Island

S. Nadia Azam Shah Bukhari

(Peshawar, Pakistan.)

Come to the Right


Shun the evil, follow the right
Kick the devil command on right
Life in death, they preach them
Kill the innocent they teach them
Dark clouds resided in their minds
With cruelty and wildness
With ignorance and blindness
What is right and what is wrong
They have no such a song
Lack of feelings and emotions
Just rule of destructions
Shun the evil, follow the right
Kick the devil command on right
Forgotten the aim of life
Truth of life, right of life
Life is obscure, minds are gloomy
No one secure, hearts say sadly
Life in death, they preach them
Kill the innocent they teach them
Open your eyes with gentle sight
Shun the evil, come to the right
Don't be so merciless
Don't be so pitiless
Shun- - - off the devilishness
Shun- - - off the fierceness
Open your eyes with gentle sight
Shun the evil, come to the right.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have been writing poems since my childhood. I wrote this poem in 2008. It was the month of November. I was on my way to home from University in a car when I started writing this poem. In those days Pakistan was contending with overwhelming terrorist attacks. Our university Voice Chancellor had been kidnapped by evil terrorists. Atmosphere was very much depressive and gloomy. Terrorists had started targeting educational institutes in Pakistan and they're still doing so. They are also targeting the mosques, schools, colleges, universities and other public places. They are targeting innocent people from every race. These are all the reasons which inspired me to convey my message through this poem. Those devil terrorists have no humanity and religion, they are just hellish people, they are inhuman, free from religion, , kindness, feelings, morality, they have no remorse over what they do and they are something worse than devils, they are enemies of not only Muslims, but of all humanity, they are enemies of all religions including Islam. May Allah (God) save all humanity from cruel people. Amen.

    deeply felt and pan human thought
    the poets notes do justice to a an otherwise lucid and clear write

    yes the knowledge divide in our societal whirlpool is far dangerous then the other divides...so a great job at trying to bridge that....by whatever means one can

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
