“I want to guard flowers against animals
I admire beauty and promote love
I want a wholesome peace with no crack
That's why I'm continuously under attack!”

RAPIDFIRE POEMS OF AN INCARCERATED POET FROM PAKISTAN

A poem for Beth & Farrah

By Habib Sulemani












Woman is the greatest of all artists
in the world we live in today!

Woman has given birth to man
who has gone astray
he has become a Frankenstein’s monster!

Woman’s created art includes artists,
poets, writers and intellectuals.
Prophets, saints and men who
announced their deity
(claiming that they had actually created
the mythical motherless Adam...)
were also the artwork of woman!

But woman has never objected to lies of men!
She has never waged any war on physical
strength or metaphysical speculation…

Like a true artist
she goes on with the pain  
creates new pieces of art
in the hope to create a peaceful
prosperous and better world one day!

If there was no woman
life on earth was impossible
as they say: woman gave birth to God
but, look, how helpless God is today!
