The Solitary Soul

O Soul! Sow never any seeds of attachment
Reaping the fruits of dismay looms large
Restrict your desires for objects of no-life
For they can't deceit you with acts of detachment

Grow not your fantasies around the people you like
That makes you live for ever in a Fool's paradise
Sincere may be your expectations from the beloved
Contempt is the reward awarded for your concern

[Hata Bildir]
