JH Sayyar's Sonnets

36
Beg for knowledge and plead for insight:
Both are gifts of God and do protect you,
And guide you when you are in plight.
It is my Lord’s promise that is most true.
Knowledge gives glee insight protects soul,
Dishonesty awards just worldly pleasure,
But its end appears in a permanent dole,
And ignorance devours all wisdom treasure.
Love for wisdom closes to the Super Being,
Love for ignorance leads men to the Hell.
We all are to die death rapidly fleeing,
None pays attention to the wisdom-yell.

If you crawl to hell hole you near to doom,
And will never be up dying youth bloom.
