Pearls Of Tears - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

Smile of roses is now turned in pearls.
Eyes are red and wet in tears,
How helpless is the man!
A single life and so many fears!
Oh Life! Your forks, your curls!
Gave only pains, and melting pearls!

Life smiled, “Poetry lacked sweetness of sorrows.”
Sent a fairy, to snatch smile and to give the tears,
See the beauty of your maiden borrows,
a poet needs such cruel spears.
Keep the wound intact and melt in the eyes.
Ahead of you are the seven skies!
