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

Silence seems to be gold
One should not be very bold
The world loves a dumb
It may be wise to remain calm

What else a humble person can do
When selfish people worship ego
Ignoring the call of humanity
They defy  vows and responsibility

It may be an offense to keep quiet
In the case of violation of human right
Tricks of players of the game of fortune
Thwart the good people to lament soon

Opportunists embrace stooge but ignore wise person
They can’t stand opponents with noble mission

 

Shaheed Minar : A Poem by Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

Shaheed Minar has become alive
Thousands proceed to place flowers
Love and respect thrive
For the valiant language martyrs
Leaders and ordinary people
Have joined the stream together
Sad song spreads as ripple
Solemn processions move with prayer

The killers shot bullets to stop voice
They could not think its reaction
The young activists had no choice
They fought bravely to honor passion

Speaking in mother language is a human right
The brave Bengali boys began the fight

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
