Elucidation


In your hour of need.
Who is whimpering?
Who is swindling?
Who is accompanying?
Don’t be judgemental!
It’s all elucidation of time.
If perpetrator have an eye on his wickedness;
Everyone would be good:
Then crime will be committed by whom?
Differences exist in all eras.
It’s all elucidation of time.
If everyone has piece of mind;
Then
Who would be deprived?
Who would be shined (blessed?)
This is what? fixture of nature and
It’s all elucidation of time
All objects must be sovereignty of mine.
Oh man! What actuality of yours & what desire of thine.
Nothing were yours, nothing would be mine.
It’s all elucidation of time.
Callous veracity in a glass of wine;
Take a sip of it
Or
Put it on the ground
Decision would be thine.

    Well, to me, it is not just 'elucidation of time', ... Time has definite, destined missions immortal to keep engaged for ever more. Fleeting human life and its affairs are but light flakes of oblivion. Peeping sharp into the blessed verses of the Holy Quran and a few supporting lines from Respected Allama Iqbal, as orated by Abdul Samad Samadani, Time has such relevance immortal! Comparisons that leads to contrasts and agreements. Wonderfully penned. God Bless, would love to read more when time permits and express my version of thoughts for your attention. Regards.

    A sudden check the reader receives from this poem when this line comes /Decision would be thine./ (Report) Reply

    Elucidation ... a pinpoint of time. Everyone has their time and everyone has their explanation for that time.
    And everyone is a second on that clock and there are billions of seconds on each minute of that clock.
    All with their elucidation or explanation for being or having something at that exact point of time. (Report) Reply

    Hard to elucidate when it is untold, predict still fine... just let feeling tells and elucidate what it was but what it will have? not so sure...elucidation is secret revelation of time and knowledge...if we know both we can do all_Soul (Report) Reply

    the ending is super.. i enjoyed it fully, blasting in the following line..Nothing were yours, nothing would be mine.
    It’s all elucidation of time.
    Callous veracity in a glass of wine;
    Take a sip of it
    Or
    Put it on the ground
    Decision would be thine. (Report) Reply

But harder grows the more I her entreat?
