Beyond the veil

Of darkness

Emerges

A figure sublime.

A lot like light

He is

Illuminating

And warm

Joining hands

Hearts

And souls

Embodying hope.

A personification

Of love

And kindness

In a measure

Unheard of.

A promise

Of justice

Reward

Forgiveness and mercy

He brings.

God’s own messenger

Of truth

No ego

No shadow.

God’s own soldier

Of peace

No fear

No greed.

I have met him not

But often felt

His affectionate gaze

Concern

And care.

And as his flock would

I trust

And follow

My leader.

About the author

Writing is my passion and I express myself both in English and Urdu, depending on my idea and subject. Having a firm belief in the the power of human emotions, my aim is to engage the reader, while offering her/ him interesting perspectives. I have a background in English Literature, which has played a significant role in shaping my thought process and personality. I have done my Bachelors in English and followed it up with my Masters in English, both from Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR), University of Delhi. Professionally, I have been working in the education industry as an editor, helping Indian students in their journey of studying abroad. I hope that my readers would also put in their comments and thoughts, for a two-way engagement. Happy reading!
