Abdul Wahab


My Own World (after Maya Angelou)


If you all leave me alone
And go away to a distant land
I shall not fear or blame any one
Still I will live fully in my own world

If you all throw me down
And tear me up hundred times
I shall not beg pardon
Or break down in tears
At the bottom- line of life
Beautifully I shall gather there
And prepare a picnic for myself

If you all want me to see in despair
And take away from me all the lights
I shall not be disappointed
Nor shall I express any indignation
Delightfully in the dark room
I shall wash off all the negatives
And make a lot of photos of life.

    Poetically it is very balanced write up...the diction is consistently lucid...but thematically it seems a bit personal.though i dont think ppl are negativ abut u...over all it speaks for strength.... (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
