Abdul Wahab


>>Me, my bicyle and life


me and my bicycle
are in a queer relation
at least in the state of running
at high speed it keeps balance
but off balance my life becomes
while I drive at low speed

me and my life
now at loggerheads
at least in the matter of speed
my life runs well like a bicycle
but at the age of forty
I could not afford high speed
upon putting much efforts
I develop back pain.

    Nice poem comparing life and bicycle;
    I could not afford high speed
    upon putting much efforts
    I develop back pain; sometimes breathlessness! (Report) Reply
