Poetry 2019 Longlist, Khurram Nizami

SAND CASTLES WILL DOOM

Few little fingers busy at beach
With a bright vision proceed further.
And with a smile they pronounce
Sand castle is now there.

But sand castle never remains forever
As waves swallow it, but not the satisfaction.
As those innocents are brilliant
They know the future.

They run here and there,
Dancing smiling sharing
Their heart is not broken
As they know sand castles can never last.

And when they grow up
Understanding the labour of effort
And when some wave swallow
They curse, and sometimes get broken.

But some innocents attaining maturity
Try taming waves, protecting castle
Forgets, the fact
Waves will remain, sand castles will doom.
