Can you bury an immortal soul? By Mazhar Iqbal

You take his body forcefully

And not allow them to say

A prayer that only immortals can imagine

You choke his voice brutally

And not allow him to inhale with them

A fresh air that he breathed into his nation

You chain his hands cruelly

And not allow him to speak freely

Just to spit on your democracy

You order a quiet burial viciously

And let the storm weather silently

A storm that is brewing fervently

Can you bury an immortal soul?

Mazhar Iqbal
