POETRY

The best poetry is when an overflow of emotions is balanced with tranquil contemplation. Give that budding poet a chance to shine at Alfaaz , incarnate your words into the best weapon there is .

POETRY IS WHAT IN A POEM MAKES YOU LAUGH, CRY, PRICKLE, BE SILENT, MAKES YOUR TOE NAILS TWINKLE, MAKES YOU WANT TO DO THIS OR THAT OR NOTHING, MAKES YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE ALONE IN THE UNKNOWN WORLD, THAT YOUR BLISS AND SUFFERING IS FOREVER SHARED AND FOREVER ALL YOUR OWN. ― DYLAN THOMAS
