Naveed Akram (15 December 1973 / London, England)
To Think of the Devil
The best thinkers expel the worst devils,
As rapidly as the angels of faith,
As quick as the minds of men,
Like the storm of a sea that smothers the boats of betrayal.
The worst devil has inspired now the good men to be bad.
How can we expunge the wrong one?
By patience the sea shall keep on covering the vessels of evil,
And let the blood of the devil believe in more evil
So that we can kindly dismay it!
To best describe this phenomenon I refer to sea and man,
I refer to the captain and his boat,
I refer to the victim and the good men of all.
Each victim must survive its storm somehow?
