To Understand The Whole! - Poem by Najib Altawell

How can you
Feel
What the victim
Feels
If you have never been
Victimised
Before?


How do you
Know
The meaning of
A true
Love
If you have never been
In love
And never loved
Yourself
At all?


How can you
Feel
The loneliness
The negligence
The cruelness
The weakness
If you use your fellow
Humans
In order to benefit
Yourself
Alone?


How can you
Be
Conscious
Of others
When your “Self” is
The only
Goal?


How can you
Be
Aware of
Other realms
When your mind is
Focusing on
Material possessions
Trapping you
To one
Lower
World?


Oh dear brother
To be free from
The bondage
To enrich the inner
To enrich the outer
You need to experience
The whole!
Complete the circle
So that
Maybe one day
You understand it
All

    This poem showed a real truth, you cannot understand something unless you experience it yourself. You do not know love, if you have never loved. You do not know heartbreak, unless your heart has been broken. You do not know despair, unless you have been in despair. A wonderful poem to read. (Report) Reply
