Behaviour Poem by Freeyad Ibrahim

Behaviour



by Freeyad Ibrahim

Do not forbid a certain behaviour
Whereas you yourself do the same
Shame on you that you did that
It is very bad for your name

Don't speak when angry
because when you get angry,
you make a mistake in chatter,
and see the world distorted
You also don't see your own face
clearly in the boiling water.

Don't be envious,
because envying others for their rich properties
hurts you first
The envied person may be depressed and you do not know
Maybe the one who feels envious, is envied

Don't say this food is delicious
For most of the delicious food is spoiled
The corrupted people, too, are beautiful
in appearance, but ugly within
A bitter fact cannot be denied.

Don't alienate and don't reproach the children
And mention their names badly on your tongue,
just because of the meanness of their fathers
For most of bright roses grow in soils
contaminated with dung.
