This Enduring Life - Poem by Metin Sahin

unfortunately
for me...life is a disease
we must overcome and endure
however is our will
sometimes
tiny..little things or creatures
fetch us to heaven
when we are sick or ill
though not a heathen
we try to reach the almighty
to repent...to ask for mercy
for our sins...our parents
our beloved and relatives
but all in vain
sömething is between
hinders and envies
not this time
says a loud voice
wait your turn
you will be repented soon
next time
somehow we are persuaded
then we lower down to the ground again
trying to live the disease again
we must overcome endurı ng
nobody knows how many lives
we mortals live
but the creator
this swamp we are in
is the only source of our lusts and ambitions.
what a pity
without this enduring life
and desire to live
there would be no worry...no lust
so we must ovecome this disease
as soon as we are permitted
pray...pray...pray and pray
just to our creator
no war...no enemy: no enmity
no killing no death
no evil nor devil
there will be peace
forever peace..no soaring
but the conforting
fluttering of the white wings
of the angels
and the bosoms of our prophets
ascending to god
this day is may be today
oh the devil
do not dissuade me
do not hinder
get out of my way
