The World Is A Playground

Rating: 3.0
I perceive the world as a playground
Where dawn and dusk appear in eternal rounds
In His Universal form is a plaything the throne of Solomon
The miracles of the Messiah seem so ordinary in my eyes
Without name I cannot comprehend any form
Illusionary but is the identity of all objects
My anguish envelopes the entire desert
Silently flows the river in front of my floods
Ask not what separation has done to me
Just see your poise when I come in front of you
Truly you say that I am egotistical and proud

The World is merely a Playground to the Egoist. The poet has spoken from the heart of the arrogant and selfish with certainty. I shrink from the reality of this portrait but what a masterly portrait of a heart without tenderness. 10

The original version is as good as heaven and through translation it seems to have lost the lucidity of the beautiful theme but after all it's very profound and philosophical............thanks for sharing
