Fatherly Advice For Azad on his thirtieth


blog_0 (1)
They say, live every day of your life
As if it’s your last.
This can be done only by a person
Who wants to end his life.
I say, live every moment of your life,
As if you are just born
Such as the day you removed
The training wheels from your bike.
Surprised by the hidden power in your legs
You pedaled away quickly
With fluttering bangs
And glittering eyes
And a panting father far behind.
