Not a Bed of Roses

Life’s a conundrum! Some of us wonder what’s in it for me. We devote everything in search for the answers. And the others plan to make someone’s life miserable. Part of the world where I live in, society is omnipotent. Everything else follows. I may start with one example and then I won’t be able…

Ill-matched

Odium and bigotry Under the same roof, Disgusted feelings Departed vehemence!   Is this a foul-up? Or A nasty destiny?   Nauseated existence Mundane mornings Dead evenings, One waits for the end Other pines for liberation!   © 2018 Soiba Tahir Photo: Google Images

The Doctor

Life is weird! Or am I? The creepiest things happen to me, that’s why! I have tinnitus. Who am I kidding by using a jargon? In simple words, it’s a continuous maddening ringing in ear or ears. Weird, right? It’s rather distressing. I’ve had it for a long time now and at this point in…

Perturbed

The exhausting search for your soul, to fill my void   Every so often, I find a stranger and I sense; the same somber vibes, the related melancholic air, Oh it surrounds me!   My futile attempts to cling to the aura; But, The stranger abhors me! I’m to him; As, You were to me,…

Justice after Death?

This is so depressing. It’s given me a lot of pain and anxiety. This post is about a little girl named Zainab who got abducted last week in Pakistan. She was raped several times and then strangled to death. I just can’t understand how can someone be so brutal. These low lives don’t deserve to…
