Shah Jehan Ashrafi


Incognito


Incognito I go

Every moment hollow

Pearls to swines I throw

Either I or they need to grow

Without a name and without fame

Life is just gambling, a mere game

In clandestine I hide in shame

Nothing do I now claim

Air, water and fire the elements of trinity

Are they suffice to lead life with dignity?

My being has become a mere existence

My talents are not my efforts but fruits of inheritance...
