..hurtful sayin'...

..hurtful sayin'...

A Poem by Irfan bin Yusuf Qadri

people do say alot of hurtful things
lettin' alone those acts they be playin'
needless like piercin' through every vein
begettin' all tricks while knowin' it stings

light be no more when be gone clarity
blind to what at first exactly has been
fightin' anger, distress or even pain
find nothin' more than discomfortness brings

how do we loose it to insanity
now be Irfan the one that is sayin'
first know humanity is as a whole
hurt one person 'n' ye have slayed them all

alas, i, the sinner knows not a thing
truth be by the One by my eyes Unseen

..love always...

I really like this Irfan, people say things that hurt a person and they don't realize the pain they inflict on one multiplies like a cancer and hurts them All!! Love the last line too - not sure I relate to it the same as you but it doesn't matter - I relate to that sentence in very personal, meaningful way :)
