Poetry 2017 Longlist, Syed Mufeed

SLAVERY OF DESIRES

Gone are the days of slavery- for human, a human.
Human desires have made him its slave,
He becomes weak for desires are brave.
He wakes up with millions of such,
But lie down not fulfilling much.
The worst to be named is desire of fame,
He does all bad and evil for his name.
Loses his identity for being well known,
The lust of desires makes him unknown.
Who remembers once you are gone?
Do some good deeds since you are born.
For good deeds remain before and after,
Even they are useful in the hereafter.
Deep in the valley of desires you are lost,
For sure you have shown your low cost.
