A Complex Character - Poem by Naveed Akram

Why is it so complicated?
The verse I seek is eternal,
That is the fastest route to the sky;
But why do we perplex ourselves
With the holy light?

The complex man favours the beasts,
He inhibits the dying and living,
Acting according to their beliefs,
And witnessing the false events;
So why is he so slow afterwards?

His speech is lowered, false flasks
Are drunk in copious amounts,
He stammers and displays
His strength when he is morbid,
And then a master has appeared.

He overshadows me, and the master,
Like a cloud so deep in thirst
That it rains with such force
Like the crying of a mad man,
In a serious mood.

Some understand, others master,
And most overshadow, to inhibit
And help like the superior men,
Who think they are bigger than beasts,
Whose mastery is so unworthy?
