Negate Awhile

by Shahida Latif

Negate awhile the earth,
Negate awhile the moon,
Negate awhile the sun,
Negate awhile the stars,
Negate awhile the matter,
And its all forms and shapes,
Solid, liquid and gaseous too,
Negate awhile the entity,
Of your own illusive self.
Then Think awhile,
What else is left behind,
Only Time in Space,
And Space in Time,
With indivisible unity,
And nothing else,
But boundless emptiness,
Without beginning or an end,
That confound, confuse us all,
While we ponder over,
The Omnipresence of the Blankness.

Hi! I am Shahida Latif from Pakistan, I am the author of many books of Urdu poetry and one novel Saath Ishq "Seven Love Legends". In my poetic career I made several tours abroad and participated in seminars and poetry reading sessions, during the international tours I was asked by the literary figures to write in English as well, so I wrote my first poetry book in English, titled "Drop The Weapons", consisting of 70 poems. The book will be soon brought out, before the month of August 2011. I have been appreciated a lot by the readers. I hate bloodshed in the world, when any one is killed in war or in any conflict my heart weeps, I through my poetry want to give the message to humanity to end war and it is the easiest to do so, just drop the weapons, enlarge your zones of acceptance, consider all men and women are children of the same parents; we can make the world more and more beautiful with love and patience and by preferring others interests to ours. It is the only way to maintain peace in the world, open your eyes and minds lest it should be too late. Love and peace for all.Shahida Latif
