Poetry offering from Sultana Raza



The On-Going Dream
While I lived in
a dream,
it unfolded itself
the way
it wanted to,
uncaring of
the pain, the hurt
it inflicted
on me and the
others around

Dispensing joys
of whether
they fell
on fertile ground...

Too much for
one person
to bear
be it sorrow
or otherwise

Yet I float
through it
not knowing
where I go
each day
in its wake
for the dream
is not over yet

I dare not
plumb too deep
it might all
make sense...
the fears and
all the rest
I brought upon myself

As for the others,
they go the way
they planned

to Sultana
