JH Sayyar's Sonnets

397
All moral evils on earth due to darkness, no light
Of knowledge people living in the lightless cave,
Knowing not friends or foes never ending fight,
Hate conquers wisdom and wit of coward or brave,
Hate eats wisdom and jealousy eats human heart,
Darkness prevails in human soul and nothing sees,
When anger sits on woman brow looks like a wart,
Eyes blind anon wisdom fails, human souls freeze,
Poverty blows out the candle of wisdom and wit,
It is evil on earth, a hell on earth for human being,
Barrens souls and at the poor’s door she does sit,
Knowing not this secret, life spindle swiftly fleeing,

All things on this globe we may buy from the mart,
Knowledge wisdom light, wisdom God’s sole part
