For the moment

a poem by Azhar S Sayed

On the road to create the earth
When lightening punctuates the storm;
And when the heart pounds its beat
Close to its heels… A moment is born.

The day opens up with a bright golden sun
And has in store for mankind, all its hues;
To build for time, a glorious history
Or to keep an account of all its dues.

Time’s womb couldn’t keep it for long
And it vomited the moment for the wrong;
Men were slaughtered in an instant
Infants, crying at a distant.

On the road to perdition! Oh so long
Every heart sung its funeral song;
No one imagined life’s invaluable cost
For the sake of a thought…

A Moment was lost.
