A TALE OF MY BURNING HOME

© Written by Imtiyaz Pandow Here
I bring you A tale
of my burning home
from this dreary paradise where peace is no where
in the whirling shades of this incompatibility.

Being its dwellers
means to
fall prey to
its expected uncertainties either become the victims or firsthand witnesses of these uncertainties.

We are left in a despair only to scribble the epitaphs over the gravestones and sing the elegies to mourn in a grief
of those falling flowers,

Who in their tender age
are being forced to leave for the heavenly abode Whose blood soaked bodies are tomorrow's witnesses of today's brutalities. Imtiyaz Pandow is from Budgam, Kashmir and is a postgraduate in Journalism and Mass Communication. He is a Web Content Editor
