Leukemia : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Wailing of cicada filled the air,
The home seems dead despite its splendor.
Beauty of spring lost its flair,
Shadow of grief gripped young and elder.

The little boy charmed all by intelligence,
His hunger for knowledge was well known.
A disease harbored in his blood in silence
To summon all neighbors to mourn.

The father of the boy became speechless,
His dream for making him a prince has gone.
His happy  life has turned to a mess,
Memories of the sweet child prick as thorn.

An old man walked to the mourning father,
He touched him softly and uttered.
“God protects all creatures with love forever.
Please keep strength of mind and stay steadfast”

The broken person remained silent for a while,
Tears rolled down his cheeks like stream.
He remembered his son’s pain and smile,
His emotions burst out like scream.

The old man embraced the person with love,
They cried together praising the innocent boy.
The place was blessed by divine dove,
The person tossed the child’s clothing and toy.

Diseases like leukemia bring premature death.
People lament the loss and renew their faith.

Malice : A Poem by Dr Syed Md Zainul Abedin

Listen to the story of an innocent boy
He bought birds to share his care
They were his passion and not any toy

Lovely little birds were source of joy
Their songs brought children from far and near
Listen to the story of an innocent boy

The birds din’t like who came to annoy
They enjoyed melodies of songs on prayer
They were his passion and not any toy

One day a jealous youth made a ploy
He dropped poison into the feeder
Listen to the story of an innocent boy

The dirty youth learnt only to destroy
His nasty act brought tears and despair
They were his passion and not any toy

Malice of people snatch away joy
Let’s hate their ugly and  sinful affair
Listen to the story of an innocent boy
They were his passion and not any toy




Artist: A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Art lives in the hearts of human
Starting at birth it ends as the setting sun
The first cry of a child is a great art
It stirs the mother and cools her heart
People enjoy smile and sounds of growing child
They rejoice any action as artistic kind

Once I met a  boy seven years old
He was like a flower with flair of gold
I was a guest in their lovely home
He was shy to enter my room
I called him to make him easy
Soon he became my friend and busy

He was curious about me and my passion
He surprised me with question after question
I wondered how to manage a genius like him
He dwelt on wonderful artistic theme
He brought his scrapbook to show his treasure
His joy for sharing was my pleasure

My sojourn was coming to an end
This news saddened my little friend
He looked pale and approached slowly
His eyes were in tears mixed with glee
He extended his hands to offer a gift
I was surprised to see the sudden shift

He gave me an art of a  lovely place
It charmed my heart with its divine grace
He painted a village with a flowing river
People enjoyed the blessing of the Great Giver
I stood speechless in front of the artist boy
Then silently left his home with immense joy

Chance : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

The boy was riding on the smooth road
He was enjoying the place near the wood
Taking the bicycle like a toy
Ran like a magic deer the cute boy
Sometimes he stopped riding for a pause
His parents rushed to him to know the cause
He smiled happily and started again
But riding was stopped soon by rain
The parents took him under a shed
They offered him jam and bread
He took juice from lovely can
He was ready again like a sportsman
He pedaled the cycle with bright smile
The solo rider would now ride mile and mile
He looked gorgeous with colored dress
He went far away taking a race
Suddenly a group of monkey came near him
He was frightened and started to scream
His parents assured him monkeys were safe
He then stopped his bike step by step
He greeted the monkeys and played with them
Monkeys taught him a wonderful game
The monkeys joined  him in a friendly dance
The boy became happy for such a lovely chance

Smile : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

The little boy shivered in biting cold
Still he was serving food for young and old
The boy rushed from table to table
His speed matched only with fable

 

Suddenly a plate fell on the ground
All became alert by the breaking sound
The hotelier rushed to the boy and slapped on the face
He became furious and lost all grace

The guests of the hotel were busy with eating
They looked listless about his beating
A girl stood and asked the owner to  stop
He spared him and returned to his place of the shop

The poor boy started his work again in fear
The savior girl watched  him from near
The boy looked at her with grateful eyes
She saw that he wore a thin cloth to her surprise

She left the hotel and went to her class
Then she went to the market with her purse
She bought a sweater and returned soon
She beckoned the boy and offered the boon

The face of the boy became bright with smile
He bounced like a bird for a while
The girl felt very happy at the divine sight
She thought at least once she honored human right
