Why the ruler of time is silent / Poem by Ayub Khawar

Poem by Ayub Khawar
 
 
Why the ruler of time is silent
 
Peace, shatters in rags
In the Holly places of supplication
In the mosques
Temples
And in the shadows of the sacred bells of churches.
 
Peace, shatters in rags
 
On the roads
In the congested streets of the bazars
In the class rooms and play grounds of schools
In the shopping centers
In the crosses
In the rallies and processions of protesters,
Against the world wide excruciating the peace and humanism.
 
Peace, shatters in rags every day
It daub itself with its own blood and put on the dust of graves.
Weather there ever ensue such a time,
As the residents of the world see the redness,
Only in the petals of the roses, flourishing soil of the earth
 
Oh! The ruler of the time
Tell us
Do you have such a moment in your possession,
As it may infuse the light of peace and harmony
In the minds of those who are bent upon to change this world
In to a heap of ashes on the earth!
Oh! The ruler of time
Do you have such a moment in your fist
As it may devour the trade of those kingdoms who engaged many countries of the world to destroy the world.
Oh! The ruler of time
Do you have such a moment in your fist
That can spread over the terror of the monsoonal gory clouds
And may the each corner of this frightened world become
Embellished with the tinges of dawn
Oh! The ruler of time
Weather your eyes gone dry or ………… dead.
