“Speculations” by Samar Ziauddin Bhatti


What do we choose?
The right passage
or the wrong path
The correct hypothesis
or the rejected conclusion?
Do we stand or fall?

Do we judge, or stand accused?
Are we the murderer
or the victim?
Guilty or innocent!
Do we prosecute or defend,
support or leave destitute?

Where do we go from here?
To infinity or the end
Do we balance or fall?
Will we follow or lead?
Change or conform!

Is it about the soul,
or the flesh?
Mortality or immortality
virtue or sin
Are we tempted to resist?

Do we become human
and beyond or...
Question is: when do we know
the reason WHY?
