Yahya Naqvi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this materialism, spirituality is in a drought
The wealthy talk big and we ignore the devout

People unaware of their destiny
Others unaware of their route

Temptation here and there will buy someone's faith out
And every kid seems to struggle with unanswered doubts

Diamond stickers on the blanket sky
Mirror majestic power and awe

An eerie, cold silence at the grave
Indication, reminder of how…

In this picture of humanity I am nothing but a dot
Character on a journey to comprehend the stories plot
Trying to find the answer, trying to untie the knot
I know where I have to get now, I know what I've got
And if I walk carefully I know I've got a shot
