Whispering Verses - Poem by AbdiSaber Yusuf

Oh! You’ve fallen in a crack,
Forced to flee, left broken;
Lost a battle and ready to quit,
A disaster had consorted with you;
Wish you’d swung from trees,
Worse is left for you!
With its vibrant warmth it covers,
Strongly control the galaxies;
The sun Never says’ ’I quit’’,
The earth that grips the fallen heroes
Never claims such bravery,
Nor the seas that pulls
The waves deep down!
Ah, He lost his wealth and
Destroyed, beneath the cores
He is spinning;
Qarun was ungrateful!
This is a gentle booming
Voice from me; for all the suffered
Souls, to only the ears that hear.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

QARUN OR KORAH story is of the Koran Stories, He was a wealthy man who was the manifestation of wealth accompanied with pride, deceit, and contumacy. Qarun was destroyed by God and the earth swallowed him. Man can spiritually move alongside two curves: toward upward that he reaches ascension and toward downward that he goes down deeply into the lowliness. The final end of amassing wealth is often miser, pride and destruction.

    Truly, The sun Never says’ ’I quit’’,
    The earth that grips the fallen heroes
    Never claims such bravery,
    Nor the seas that pulls
    The waves deep down!
