Treasure Island

Aftab Alam

(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

I am a Moth


Yes, I am a moth, born to burn
My desire is, only light
I am not glow worm
The flame kills me
Yes I am unknown
Yet a lover
In thy memories
Criss crossed and die
I am unwanted
In the group of shameless lot
I am gifted a gift
I always reminded
Vitrue
I am a story of virtue
I am an arrow for vice
I talk humanity
Desireth to be human
With light brilliant, high lumen

Far south the lift,
