Wisdom - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Let's go to the green steps of the lawn
And do the sums of life there sitting down

If we want only profits and no losses
And all the losses turn into profits
And all the profits turn into losses
Then the scale of life, of course, dis-balances
This leads us not in paradises but, of course, in hells.

It seems to be small whatever things we gained
It seems to be big whatever things we lost
If all the lost things are gained
And all the gained things are lost
Then life is not, at a gain but definitely at a loss.

If the profits are the blissful graces
Then the losses are not less than the spices

Whatever we do on the steps sitting
All these are not sums but a bargaining
This Leads us nowhere but to do mistakes
In this we never do profits but always do losses.

    life is like a bargaining table. there will always be gains and losses. But I have found over the years the gains are much more than the loss (when we lose in return we appreciate the gain) (Report) Reply

    a brilliant piece of poetry, the message is straight forward, logical and very much philosophical, a real wisdom people should ponder on these points, loss and profit, in this time and in this world of selfishness the poem is to much relevant. (Report) Reply
