Creation - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

God in creating the universe
With the longing and the hopes
Evaporating into frustrations
Sighs incomparable and in the cosmos
The storm with words unable to express
In Gods great scheme and the idea
Sketches innumerable
Or a single word
And all was
And all is
The creation has not come to an end
Except that the God shall will it one moment
With the doomsdays destruction
While in the making
The agony and the ecstasy
The cosmic pain and the cosmic joy
Divine in interpretation
Creation ultimately
I bring at arms length
Hold it down on the tip of my finger
The magicians blow of air into that distance
No balm shall cure the wounds that I have suffered
In the creations discovery of the things
Unnamable for so many more
Shall name them as they wish
Move the earth into heavens distant infinities
God’s revelations coming to us
Explaining the infinite truths
O reason guide me
Guide me into this maze
Thou art so limited
In my comprehension
I fail to understand
The grand design
In separation I shall understand
Or in ultimate union I shall discover
But will my pain and anguish
Be over at that time
I pray thee O God
At that moment rest me in peace
Wash my memory
Of the sufferings here
The mused beauties
Open thy doors
Of paradise as I know of it
As my eternal abode
