“Absolute Relativity” (نسبية غير نسبي)

23water-flame-fantasy04-m58

All of this creation is but falsehood (of a kind),
for to believe one’s own reality is but a trick of the mind.
Only seeing with permission, can we be anything but blind –
when of the great unknown, we can naught of our own-selves find?
The past was just a moment ago in the present’s dogged grind,
but it’s just as lost in mystery as what the future hides behind.

Infinity – a
plane contracted to a point.
Perfect Observer.

We neglect all that surrounds us, yet purport Him as unkind;
we prefer paltry gains and shadow lives to life undying and refined.
This shade of senses smothers us and grips us in its bind
while we scrounge around for meanings of what’s already been defined.
All of this creation is but falsehood (of a kind),
for to ponder this reality just compounds lies on tricks of the mind.

  1. MashaAllah, THIS is my favourite, because of its’ deep philosophical theme! Allama Iqbal (rahimullah) couldn’t have done better! Bravo!
