Poems by Syedah Maryam Iqbal
What we see!
On the surface, smooth waters,
Underneath a warfare, a flood, a storm.
You never know when the mood alters,
And the smoothness starts to deform.
What we see, cannot believe,
For what appears reality can deceive.
Life is so short to perceive, believe and achieve,
That we should always be prepared to heave.
O Vengeful Soul!
O Vengeful soul!
Your abusive actions and corruption
Have not made my words to tremble,
They flow with the fluency of the sea,
They fly with the speed of the wind,
They enlighten with the swiftness of the light.
O Vengeful soul!
See! Your harsh utterances,
That once cracked my passions
Have now empowered me to fight,
Deal with all the fright,
Stand for everything that is right.
O Vengeful soul!
Behold! The little innocent creation
That was once frightful of monstrous shadows,
Unseen creatures and horrifying images,
Found everything in your disposition,
Your exploitation has given me insight.
O Vengeful soul!
Discern! Your malice, resentment and hostility
Cannot settle my destiny,
As it is in the hands of the One
That has all the might,
Over everything that is dark or bright.
