On The Cross

My poem published in Us Magazine today:

On The Cross
By Muhammad Awais Aftab

Ah, the insensitive world around me
So hostile to love
So envious of lovers
The bird of love
Flaps around in the cage
Trapped, since ages
For ages
But like a prophet on the cross
Its death will give life to millions
How many would they cage?
How many would they kill?
And love would live on.
