JH Sayyar's Sonnets

420
Ah! How time steels your youth and beauty? Let us think!
O My Lady! Think how time converts youth into old age
Our thoughts heavy with sins like iron into sin-ocean sink
Our soul’s surmise, yea, due to our unjust and unkind rage,
Time conquers all but soul conquers cruel time and space,
Sinful souls away from God’s face straying in grave yard!
Deserted helpless crying in gloom running an endless race
Salvation for such in heaven and on earth, very, very hard,
O Man! Success key lays in spend precious time in leisure,
Time is gold, time is truth and time is our precious wealth,
The Rays converting time into woe and woe full pleasure,
Earth time compromises with heavenly time perfect health.

Time changes hell into heaven and heaven into bitter hell!
Our age composes of different time units wise know it well.
