THE GRAVEYARD

By, Vajid Abdulla
Basking in the sun,
I thought of the fun,
That we had in that years,
Filled with joys and tears.
.
Twisting roads and paths,
Funny words and complex maths,
We had time to ponder
And talkative friends to wander.
.
Tall trees and laughing flowers,
Long days and leisure hours,
Everyday there was something new to discover,
To shield in the hearts forever.
.
As days became months,
Friends became digital moths,
Joys and merries receded,
Hate and aversion preceded.
.
As flowers gave way to flyovers,
Joint families cut short into temporary lovers,
Ways of seeing things got limited,
Volcanoes of creativity got melted.
.
What now remains is a single road,
A single food and a single good,
Laying in this beach, I crave
Had I been out of this grave…
.
