Distant Life - Poem by Naveed Akram

The distance of life is too long,
Longer than the ages of this world.
My collected views are in the sights
Of our reality, from up above and inside
The earth of the soil, a righteous act.

Life warns us to open the enigmas,
Inciting the fervour of a hundred men,
Keeping them at bay with selfless thoughts,
Like the author of a disaster or calamity,
This calamity carries the tone of disharmony.

One of the upper limits carries a ceiling
Of joy, the sealing of the heart marries
Me to enigmas of life, stranger distinct pleasure
Arouses the neck and muscle, so physiologically
Speaking, my containment is within the soil.

The soil and the marriage to it combines, and so
Opening the doors of the essential rites,
My funeral negates me in the final lesson
Given to my forgiven soul, the appearances are apt
And subtle, too soft to touch and consider.
