If you think, Slavery,
Think of life on Earth,
Human life, more specifically!
If you think, Freedom,
Think of spirituality
Which gives you cues, hints, guides
And even gives you space to allow your soul
To be itself,
As long as your heart would be full of love!
If you think Love,
Think of the warmth of hands, as they tenderly
Or think of rugged cheeks
As they brush against yours
While you allow your eyes to seem like
A tranquil river flow,
A tranquil flow hiding behind its fluidity
A pulsating ready to birth volcano,
A powerful one, mighty enough to shatter the
Glass mirrors of this false world!
If you think Desire,
Think of the glow of the full moon
As it shines proudly in the night sky
While secret lovers, with aching hearts
And with awakened senses,
Torture themselves in their beds,
Lamenting at their fates
For, they remain unable to voice out of their passion!
If you think Happiness,
Think of God’s words, those same,
Specifying that this world remains a punishment
That here, none is to experience the state of ecstasy,
At least, not in its genuine and its pure form!
If you think, Life,
Why, think of it as void, without the acceptation of the skies’ will
Without the surrendering to their guidance
Without the allegiance that should be there for them
Deep in the very root of your heart!
And if you think of Us,
Love, think beyond human terms,
Think of Eternity, of ruling Death,
Of establishing Holy rules, of setting fate lines
And of Creation being, for you, a child’s play!
