i would that i were not daughter of your home

Taking promenade, i met a lady...
Having sleak blonde hairs.............

Asked me what do you do here?
With peculair smile i replied......

With short height, bulky figure
What can i do here..................

Adjusting her glasses............
She promptly said.................

As if she remembered something
She called out to me.................


Whose daugter are you.............
I guess you are daughter of Ilyas a person well_known

Younger two daughter of him seem like groom
Having beauty beyond the someone predict on


But

Eldest daugther of whom..
Being proved bad omen for their home..
Outward Appearance of her's filling their life with thornes..
Hath personality as clumsy loam...................................

He aring this, i lowered my eyes
Rubbed my palms,
Tears came on..

Till then to still....

With such wistfull desire my life is going on..

    All we are concerned with outward beauty and this makes blind to whatever lies deep in human soul....the beauty that is immortal and timeless...I think this is the powerful theme of this narrative poem.

    A tragic story brilliantly written with intense
    emotional impact. Well done.

    I wish the poem is not auto biographical, it is fictional, with fictional characters, taking the as not real i like the story i mean the concept, and the expression is up to date, modern....rest of the things like agree with jahan zeb.

    Is there anything that can be called beautiful? If yes my dear Farah..... then.... Is there anything that cannot be called beautiful?
    You are the sweetest of all..... never can u be a bad omen...

    heart breaking. She has beauty that her family doesn't see or treasure.
