Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


***River


Life

Layers after layers
Sucked up all the elements of light

In the abyss
A crone lies in the dark, pitch
Mystery of all the mysteries

No mind over there ever reached
Mother of all curiosities

Lower of the lowest
Sad of the saddest wave


Brighter than the brightest
No heart over there ever reached

In the zenith
A beautiful fairy resides
Wonder and surprises

Higher than the highest
Joy and delight

I know both of them
Joy and sorrow

I am your life
I go through
Higher than the high and lower than the low.
