Iztiraab*

as i grew i realized the truth

that everything wanes or evolves

and when time tests the conscience in cunning garb

static,it neither wanes nor evolves

then what rules is iztiraab

until regret wanes as memory evolves

i am possessed by iztiraab

 

*Iztiraab is an Urdu word which means: restlessness, perturbation, anxiety.
