The Flame
by Shernaz Wadia
Bookmark and Share
 

You talk of death
not having feared life
your freedom
hooked, dangling from
tyrannical claws
 
you await death 
as you are roasted
on the grill of torture
smoked dignity spiraling
towards callous gods
humanity beggared
by despotic vagaries
 
the shroud of oppression
you transform
into a pennant proud
the smoldering pyre
of your aspirations
glows eternal
to light passages
of darkened times
for generations unborn
