Hope against all odds

Written by: Irfana Ali Bhat

Whether it's dawn or dusk,can't decipher
What's my destiny,can't decipher

I have wandered into this place
Where even living is forbidden

Not even a streak of light left
Not a single beat of loving heart

All hopes shattered to pieces
All dreams have left their abode

Stench of  stale air around
Grasping for each breath


Still wishing this strangled breath could get some relief
A sign,a hope ,it would be to live again.....
