SORROW By Abdullateef Ridwanullah

Written by Editor

Sorrow is what kills the power of happiness
The effect of your own sorrow
can activate the same feelings in another
It destroys its adorable wings
and makes it impossible to fly about
It freezes and makes it impossible to flow around
It condenses and makes it difficult to diffuse around
It sublimes and makes it impossible to accumulate.
Next time you’re in sorrow
remember that somewhere in the earth surface
someone is sharing your feelings,
parents or siblings,
husband or wife.
Get over it and spread happiness
for without this you will seem to be living in darkness
