Grand Son Of Love - Poem by Abdul Wahab

I am a non-fatal dangerous disease
I do not inflict people but they pick me up
From the neighbour's tip of rise
Out of hate, the daughter of love,
And the son of her, I am born
They kindle the fire and I burn
I eat up their soul’s flesh and they ache
Yet they do all out of love and do without knowledge
To have what others have but they do not
In disguise I am ‘admiration’ though they know not
So one needs much wisdom to unlace the knot
By which I now bind them with me too tight.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

this is one of my favourites, think deep and say what the poem is all about?

i am giving you hints...hate is another form of love, hate is the daughter of love as she is coming from Love, when hate is too much then jealousy is formed thus takeing birth the grandson of Love...jealousy.....got it?

    thinkers say that hate is another form of love... and i agree with them....there are many writings on this, and too much hate produces 'jealousy '' and the poem is all about it... wahab (Report) Reply
