Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


<<<<<Hope


Hope is a cheater
I am deceived by it many times
Once it had seated me
On a branch of a fig tree
And waited me for long
For the flowers
It would bloom

Another day it had laid me
On a corner of a bed
And waited me for long
For the milk of love
It would bring from the butts of a hen

At the end
I had given nothing
Neither flowers nor milk
I was a fool and now feel guilty
To be too indulgent with it.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
