FEATURED POEMS of DR. MUDASIR AHMAD GORI
February 2021 SCREAMING SILENCE
Words are missing
The silence hides a scream
Yet it interconnects.
It is born out of repression
And aims to liberate my soul
From the inaudible storms
That have nurtured ages ago.
I remained silent for
"The deepest rivers are the quietest."
The frozen soul has melted and
Words are missing
But a lot has been said
Screams have reached to the deaf ears
To the stone hearted folks
With a hope
That no other soul has to scream in silence.
© Dr. Mudasir Ahmad Gori AGONIZED HUMANS Immortalized dead bodies, My young progeny,
Destined to drive us across the shore.
These pearls have fallen to bullets,
Their innocent bodies pierced with deadly metal.
Screeches of sisters echo,
Stains of blood on mourners are evident.
The perfume of grief,
The sobs of mothers,
Elders sniveling, stand still.
The fights to have the remaining relics of brave hearts,
Last glimpse before the send-off,
To the world of eternity.
The shroud of the martyr
Deck with garlands and cologne,
Hands festooned with myrtle.
