Friend, Wake Up! Why Do You Go On Sleeping?

Rating: 3.1
Friend, wake up! Why do you go on sleeping?
The night is over— do you want to lose the day
the same way?
Other women who managed to get up early have
already found an elephant or a jewel...
so much was lost already while you slept...
and that was so unnecessary!

The one who loves you understood, but you did not.
You forgot to make a place in your bed next to you.
Instead you spent your life playing.
In your twenties you did not grow
because you did not know who your Lord was.
Wake up! Wake up! There's no one in your bed—
He left you during the long night.

Kabir says: The only woman awake is the woman
who has heard the flute!

An inspiring poem to rejuvenate by awakening from the bed and avoiding laziness and to get perfect and straight for victory in this short span of life. Holistic approach oriented poem which is very interesting and meaningful.
