A World Of Cries

i never knew twas like this
this world this earth
this land of cries

ah! at my birth
what a sight i beheld
what a world i found myself in
so unlike the eden in the promise

i came with cries
albeit and i'll go with cries
i mourn my coming
you mourn my going

during my toil i cried
it came through pores in my skin
twas in my armpit
even from every part
i cried, oh! i cried
as i came to know
tis a world of cries i came

    This is an expression of the sadness that is always in life - for some it is the knowledge that life is not for ever, but you tell us that life itself has too much pain. The two stanzas above are moving and largely true, but as Penny says, I hope you will find compensations. Your poem 'A name for my daughter' suggess to me that you already understand that very well. Keep up your good work, Hamid.

    Giacomo Leopardi wrote: 'The native day is fatal to everybody who was born'. It's true. I think sometimes man should remember it. However, sometimes one could forget it.
