last year or
year before
last the same
ramzan same
fast ..this year
future or past
dark clouds
overcast
but hope
keeps the fight
alive ..till the
breath lasts
no doubt
we are
muslims
whether
this stream
or the cliched
mainstream
our fate
linked
with bombs
blasts
terrorists
treated
as outcasts
by paid media
communal
broadcasts
light shade
contrast

every
mornings
the rush
of the
trains
from mumbra
to bandra
being humane
the travel
the agony
the cosmic
chain
those who
give us alms
seek our
blessings
in exchange
a few coins
wet and moist
like our tears
in the rains
as hope
flows down
the open gutter
in the drain

mother
we beggars
too can dream
a school uniform
a water bottle
a school bag
me playing
for the cricket
team..bouts
of loneliness
depleted
day dreams
mama please
tell me why
as muslim beggars
why do they say
we are not part
of the mainstream
why does this pathetic
difference as thought
opinion become
extreme as muslims
why did not god
give us a muslim
bloodstream

bismillah arahmanirahim
we are mere particles
of what he deems
he saves he redeems

if only
my parents
were educated
even if they
were not rich
i would not
be lying
helpless
at the mercy
of others
in this ditch
i could have
been a tailor
clothes i could
have stitched
or shaving beards
barbers itch
fate oh cruel
fate there was
a hitch..

i seek hope
peace i seek
a niche ..

educated
like these kids
my life could
have been
enriched

a month
of piety
a month
of devotion
charity
highest
emotion
an extra
portion
her inert
life back
in motion
she asked
for a drop
the almighty
gives her
an ocean
