You are as much childhood
as you are memory,
as much happiness
as you are pain.
Equal parts of treasure
and the dirt that covers it.
I won’t say goodbye
humble, piteous town,
I’ll say khudahafiz,
I wish you peace,
I’ll say salaam
As I depart.
But I’ll be around
humble town,
You’ve been the worst best friend.
