///Listen To Thyself - Poem by akram saqib

O! Trainer master
I am the king
This is crown prince
Make his mind waster

Manners of court
He has learnt
Strengthen him so
To make invincible fort

O thy lordship
I would surely do
All my best
With greater hardship
Master trainer to the prince commands

O the prince make hustle
Go to the dense forest
Listen in quietness
What the leaves rustle

Do report back
The voices quiet
I’ll make up
If something lack

PRINE
I spent days a lot
In chasing vices
Perused them closely
But understood them not

MASTER
Go again and now
Listen with great care
What quietness says?
And report me back so
PRINCE
O master I have returned
With a lesson that I learnt
The way of esteem and respect
I’ve from loneliness earned

The success of a man lies
In the sounds that vies
With the conscience
In the deep deep silence
