"Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong; they are the ones to attain felicity".

A Pearl and a Drop of Water

By: Dr. Maqsood Jafri

Like a burning candle I shed tears all the night.
And brighten the dense dark shadows with gleams.
With a passion to decipher between wrong and right.
A visionary poet lives in the hollow shells of dreams.

A pearl is a drop of water poised in shell it is elevated.
It distances itself from the turbulent waves of the sea.
By the benevolent hand of Nature it is carved and created.
After trials and tribulations it presents its' profound plea.

Cognizant of its' vital Self, it recognizes the otherness.
Self- cognizance is the secret of ones' self- sublimity.
For human soul the self is the only gorgeous dress.
No supremacy without the natural boon of creativity.

Be a sheeny pearl and shine in the crown of a king.
Water drop vanishes by the scalding rays of the Sun.
Pearl finds its' safe place in the  precious golden ring.
To be a pearl, the watery posture you have to shun.
