Paradox - Poem by Muhammad Shanazar

A crawling worm on the wall,
Vanishes, goes out of sight,
Whether it reaches on the other end,
Of the wall or falls in between,
Only the wall is a propping
Support of its existence.
The worm demands nothing
Just liberty to crawl,
If it gets the opposite end,
Enjoys itself the tang of life;
But its being in life itself is a danger,
For on existence of the lifeless worm,
There stand erect giant
Lower and upper houses;
But the dwellers put the worm down
And they now in its anguish
Will raise the slogans of protest.
