    Litter is all around us While we plead clean The earth is dying slowly And we, unsuspecting, unaware The blow is about to fall We won’t die from a flood Or a storm from above Or a quaking ground But we’ll die slowly Suffocating to death Under the oppressive weight Of our own litter!...

    The shadow long-standing was cleaved The night’s vigil was lost The monster was at last released The world, sunk in dreams, was lost The hour struck, the bell fell The last of its beats was lost The might gong, the shining light The whole lighthouse was lost My ship was lost, wandering in ...

    In a world dominated by people who have the audacity to “be gay, light, shining”, one often finds people who are tagged “shy, diffident, timid” simply because they just don’t mix in with the crowd. They don’t enjoy parties, they don’t perform well in group meetings, and they flunk out ...

    “Sometimes I have believed in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” Matilda was reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and she was enjoying it immensely. She had been impressed by the way Alice could shut up like a telescope and regrow simply by drinking from a bottle or takin...

    What once was Is now no more The hand that rocked The cradle has gone; The voice that betrayed Love is lost; The face that smiled Is wrinkled now; The eyes that yearned Are in their sockets sunk; The heart that loved Is in pieces thousand broken; The skin rosy, warm Is colored pale now;...

    Time is perhaps the greatest contender of human intellect. We pit ourselves against time, only to find that it has already defeated us. And reading Zeno’s paradoxes in a quantum mechanics book does not help when you are supposed to be studying Guyton and KLM. These things just happen, all by thems...

    When I opened the class door, a buzz of activity told me that the teacher was in. Entering as nonchalantly as I could, I took my seat and placed my bag beside me, opening it a second later to take out the bulky English textbook inside which was hidden an all-time favorite novel of mine, Uncle Dynami...

    Since the creation of this rather beautiful world, few people have descended from heaven to suffuse light and happiness everywhere and mesmerize the world with a mere snap of their fingers. And believe it or not, perhaps the only English humorist to stand in this high-rank is P.G. Wodehouse, whose ...

    The road is free, the path is set The sun shines, the way is paved The memory is clean, the mind fresh But on the heart lies a burden strange The paths to creative will I saw The road of deep destiny I traversed But there remained, in a corner hidden A coil of flesh and stink and dirt That g...

    In the land beyond the sea Lived a toad in a pot of tea Lived he with friends of yore Around whom legends were wrought in lore In the land beyond the sea Lived a serpent in a green tree His neck wound around the trunk Scuttled everyone as he enjoyed a bunk In the misty mountains old Whe...

    As on a twig I perched Immersed in thought; suddenly a screech From the depths of some misery untold Burst out, shattering the quiet I took to flight, frightened awhile Something dreadful happened again Down in the land where men lived Shamming beggars, knowing not how to live My son, he sat...

    A gun whizzes past Nancy’s ear as she starts her lecture. She turns in alarm, but before she can say anything, another pierces her body and she topples over, before being decisively shot in the head. Her students, many of them young kids scream as a fusillade of bullets silences them for eternity....

    You know when you walk into the library and everyone stops in the midst of their work and throng to catch a glimpse of your physiognomy, their mouths agape, their eyes filled with wonder and a message of change punctuated in the fresh dribble of saliva produced from their glands as they drool. They ...

    Lahore. The city of charms, love and uniqueness. The epitome of cultural activity. The landmark of history. The capital of the Mughals, the city of gardens and palaces. The hub of literary and sociopolitical activities. Our progenitors used to say “Lahore Lahore hay” (English translation: Lahore...

    Evening reigned in the land of sorrow. The birds flew overhead, their harmonious voices synchronizing to form a dirge-like song. Her lachrymose voice seeped through me as it told in words the story of misery, fate and will. I swayed slightly, my tears saturating the barren earth. We started our jou...

    The book lying before me A voluminous tome of history Of men alive and men vilified Of love and loss, care and misery A boring book, you might say One that brings no joys to day One that stifles search and quest One that hinders; a boring pest But nay, my comrade dear Read your future sprea...

    The moon crawled up, starring in the night script, until it was right above my head. The sight I encountered was ghastly. The ground was being irrigated by the blood of thousands of veterans whose corpses embellished its physiognomy. Their accoutrements were scattered over the vast battlefield. Ever...

    As the shadows lengthen And the days begin to darken As night takes up its abode Leaving all to scurry and hasten As love at first sight As Nature with all her might As the tender buds sprout Reveling in the joy of light Eyes fill with tears, legs wobble On crutches does the old man hobble ...

    People often behave rashly and contemptuously while talking about others. For instance there are a lot of people who, in the process of passing judgment, often utter a hideously discriminated remark. Such people don’t think before speaking. What they consider to be a mot; a witty remark; is someth...

    Locked in mental combat with those infernal studies, I have a good mind to maneuver into the dock. However, it just happens that I love reading books, and while college may be the devil’s advocate’s doom, it has the one thing that I need to get on; books. I just can’t live without them. But th...

    This is the truest statement you ever get to read in your life. A lot of people are out there who just sweat about “what will everyone say” about things that concern them. If you need to pull along, just do it without listening to every bothering bumbler. I mean, why should you mess up your life...

    “Our eyes shed tears and our hearts are filled with grief, but we do not say anything except that by which Allah is pleased.” The dead body, wrapped in a white sheet, was lowered in the grave, and a mound of earth was piled on the top. People silently stood as the Imam announced, in deep fune...

    In her breathtakingly amazing début novel, S.E.Hinton, afterwards known as “The Voice of the Youth", delivers penetrating insight in the depth of feelings contained within a teen: a person who is derided by the society on the grounds of defying morality and breaching the societal code of con...

    The guys at the town’s coffee inn sat, their hands on their knees, conversing with great leisure and ease, as if they were experiencing the most halcyon period of their lives. Their minds wandered elsewhere, their confabulation ranged from the most commonplace subjects to those compared to whom a ...

    Every teenager striving, struggling, and grappling with the unfair behavior and atrocious attitude of life is another Harry Potter, another Eragon Bromsson, another Frodo Baggins, another Katniss Everdeen, another Peeta Mellark and another Hermonie Granger fighting against the rule of tyranny and op...
