JH Sayyar's Sonnets

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

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