Jan Muhammed Khan the journey is not easy in this empty gunny sack!

It suffocates and the firm strands of jute pierce my heart so.

Coins of moonlight jingle in the amber bowls of my eyes while night continues to spread through my body

Who will strike a fire on your naked back? Who will fan the embers? Who will flourish the bloody flowers of strife?

There is no more life left in my fiery claws.

Today the journey is not easy.

Soon this well trodden path will lead me to the bottom of a filthy pond and I shall fall asleep embracing my coffin of solitude becoming one with the water.

And you must trod on in a deep sleep for you are oblivous to that invisible sack. Your very own empty sack which engulfs you.

Jan Muhammed Khan, the journey is not easy
