Wither, Wither

Wither, Wither


Rhyme and Reason

In this world wonderful, colourful

The panting human, doing needful!

The heart doth desire the sublime

The beyond, will the soul climb

But Oh, how shall I say it all!

To exist, doth the human fall!

In the sky, though many a star

Each from the other afar

As me, each forlorn in solitude

Wandering around with fortitude

Is the world then my stage?

Or am I but in a cage?!

Wailing aloud, my lament unfortunate

"Wither, wither my soul-mate?!"

(Tr. From Iqbal's Javed Namah)
