JH Sayyar's Sonnets

455
Every child gets on birth two spirits: ill and well
The guards of human soul, living in men’s brain
One draws men to heaven the other draws to hell
Men’s wisdom enjoys this sight in a wisdom lane
Spirits in the mind, in shape of ill or well notions
Guiding righteous soul, and talking men in lone
When greed poison spreads in soul commotions
In such situation slips from there but in low tone
Tall men in silence before men falling in evil deed
It is called heart voice but we chide it with tongue
It grows in our hearts: evil thinking all day its seed
When wisdom fails it attacks all green and young

When silence prevails listen to the Angel’s voice
The spirit guides men when be wrong our choice
