The Soul-ar Eclipse


A house, a car, as nice and expensive
A focus on things, so fixed and intensive
The morals are gone, the ego is lying
The soul is eclipsed and silently crying

Prayer is left, faith is obscured
By drinks and by sex our egos are lured
Stocks and cash demand the attention
No place for the spiritual dimension

Even if creed and religion’s alive
The ego makes it a reason for strife
No thought during prayer, only through lips
It’s hardly a cure to the soular eclipse

Prayer with heart and prayer with mind,
Acts without strife, and randomly kind
Are the way of the good ones, the way of the wise
Our world and our lives are meant to be nice

    millions dollar in cash, mansion reach the clouds, beauty queens on row; will not satisfied human greed. There are more to get and become theirs; no words of Thanks Allah (Alhamdullillah) but more sins will be done by them.
    this is the reality since i understand what is modern life all about. power, money, sex, betrayal, lies and all devilish act shall become man character once the Most Gracious Allah give them what they want.Too little to say and pray for Allah forgivesness.

    Saying much, very good title of the poem and a lovely affinity to rhyming, which is quite rare lately - this makes me think that there is some eclipse of the good old rhyme ;) in the contemporary poetry... (Report) Reply

    So very relevant to the times that we are living in.

    A very lovely poem with pathos for modern deteriorating values which obscure our real self.
    You are very good in spicing up your poems with simplicity of emotions. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

A smile of joy since I was born
