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.

Little Boy: A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Little Boy was a clever name
He played a merciless and fiery game

People of Hiroshima melted like snow
Little Boy displayed his atomic glow

Warmongers are not happy with death
They feed Little Boy to appease wrath

(Hiroshima was turned to a hell on 06 August 1945 by the atom bomb,Little Boy)

The River : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

The river stinks
It’s a hell on the earth
My mood sinks
As I miss its mirth

I can’t measure
The extent of pollution
The precious treasure
Has become a delusion

The river is full of venom
It jumps out to bite one and all
There lives danger in each atom
You will be killed soon if you fall

The river is a pool of sin
Effusion of humanity drains into its stream
Signs of death dance and grin
Frustration and fear make me scream
