In Prayers



Namaz is maqbool poetry;

the traits of a considerate Allah

have somehow stalled to trickle


to a heart that wouldn’t listen

to the poems I observe

in the night long vigils.


Yet when I stand before the Lord

or when I prostrate,

an image gets vivid,

adding to the metaphor,

so much so

to be the theme of the poem.

    I am looking for someone who could give me the reason of life, who could tell me what exactly I am looking for. Why my soul is restless, why am I not finding peace with anything? Why everything seems blurred and useless, why this world seems inappropriate and worthless place to live. What am I looking for exactly?
