Just when I feel, I’m running out of thoughts, my dearest friend Sarah comes and wakes me from my slumber. Here’s what I wrote for the wonderful drawing she shared with me!!
Hope you’ll like it!

Lots of love and best wishes. . .

I´m very proud to present another collaboration that combines the wonderful words of my dear friend and writer Syeda with one of my drawings! 🙂

The Wise Age

Standing in the alley

I watch them play around

Little kids whom I saw

Puking in their mother’s arms.

I watch the little hands

That held mine and learnt to walk

Today cross their ways past me hastily

Avoiding me, unwilling to acknowledge.

These old wrinkly hands and face

Are not something I would want to lose

They have come to be, after all

The wars and struggles I’ve fought.

They are the marks of my victory

Of having emerged out of the abyss.
