Longing and Belonging: Who Are We Waiting For? Read Here.

Why do your teary eyes wait?

That person is on the gallows,

But whose gallows,

Are they?

If we are parting,

Why wish for a union

With a prayer on your lips?

You know who holds power

Over prayers.

Did reason create the rift,

Or is it the chaos of the subconscious?

Who knows what causes the discord

Between us?

All the torments meant to be fall,

Have descended.

Yet who are we,

Waiting for the Day of Judgment?

Centuries have passed

Since abandoning desires,

Yet, why is this heart

Still restless for someone?

Aslam Murad
