JH Sayyar's Sonnets

429
I ponder and ponder on the mystery of good and bad,
I see no evil on earth, nor any man carrying breast,
All evils in holy hearts without God’s blessing, heed,
Our ears listen to wrong, our eyes in things just pest,
Our eyes see the shadow of the being, not a real being,
Our ears listen to wrong and ignore right anon fall,
Our hearts decide right and wrong we are daily seeing
Wisdom sits idle in brain and watching human gall,
Alas! Our soul within the soul corrupt with evil mind
That controls actions evil past causes evil present,
That is why; on earth men are none to one kind,
Good future rests on the man’ link to God gift sent!

O My Rose! Come let us promise to refine evil being,
The seeing see nothing, our poor life swiftly fleeing
