Be a believer
 
“When all the doors
are closed
and friends
become foes.
 
Pray to God
in pious pose.
You will bloom
like the fragrance of rose.”
 
 
 
Sadness
 
“I’ve seen
people wish
to get rid of sorrow.
 
It hardly leaves
but always stands
in front of us to take it borrow.
 
Feelings of sheer sadness,
our opinions about leading life
turn narrow.
 
It not only fills present-day with tense
but also wastes
precious moments of tomorrow.
 
So,
fly fearlessly
like the agile sparrow.
 
Let’s come
to enjoy each
pleasant scenario.”
 
 
Never give up
 
The fleeting time
catches its thirsty prey
by the alluding
mirage of wine.
 
Glasses of wine
misguide the person
by offering
plates of salty dine.
 
The weary traveler
finds no zest
in such
empty glasses and dinner.
 
He begins his journey
as a child again
to quench
the thirst with water.”
