If you’d like me to,
I’ll change my world view,
Put down the flaming cocktail,
And put back up the veil,
I’ll go to bed at a reasonable hour
And imitate a face that isn’t sour,
I’ll work a nine to five like the best of them
Till the lights inside go dim,
Put on a suit and tie,
And wait politely to die.

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) - 61

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem

Not to eagerly expect hope who they are irrelevant
As none of them are undoubtedly worth able,
Of your valuable time or your genuine concern.

They are fond to their social customs and private rituals.
They are greedy and more self preserve towards themselves.
Therefore don't eagerly expect hope from them.

You wisely believe the unique path for yourself.
The unique path of your Beloved, Who is wisely your absolute existence,
Politely ignore everyone and everything,
Peacefully walk on your unique path of your Beloved!

Allah Khair..... Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust)
sara Mar 2018
I've got too many books that I just don't read
and too many lines which I need not speak
and so many times I still forget to breathe
So darling, you're not what I need

I've so many thoughts running through my mind
and too many lines in queue for me to write them
and so many mates who could do with good advice
So darling, I've not got the time

I've seen too many films and I've seen this bit
I've had too many drugs and I know this trip
I can't play the guitar but I've played this riff
So darling, why don't we just leave it?

Sometimes I speak slightly at an angle,
or blow money out quick like a candle.
Sometimes I'll be too heavy to handle
so don't pick me up because I could be ******* fragile.

I've been to all the shows and I know this song
and I'll still get the key, tune, note, words wrong
and I've a long list of friends where it's been way too long
I'm sorry, you're not what I want
why do ppl need a justification when theyve already been turned down ??

half poem half song idek just a spitball

Sorry about the punctuation

Where are you hiding?
Come out from your shell
I've been ringing the bell, but you refuse to open your door politely,
Finally you answer my call..
I've been waiting half an hour, outside your window,
I didn't have anywhere else to go, so let me in!

— The End —
