Does it Matter?

Saturday 28 June 2014, by Faiz Ahmed Faiz

My tablet and my pen,
My two cherished treasures
Are snatched from me,
But does it matter?
For I have dipped my fingers
In the blood of my heart;
My tongue they sealed
Bu does it mater? For,
I have placed a tongue
In every link of chain
That fetters me.
