Umid Ali writes


We divinized to the mountain and became God, 
Ultimately, our heads fractures as stones. 
We divinized to a sea – it became God, 
Thereafter, the bitter tears blinded our eyes

We deified to the fire - it became God, 
Eventually, we turned gray before burning.  
We divinized to the wind – it became God, 
At length, we were hanging through the air. 

There was no way that leads to heaven.
In the end, we divinized to the soul as salvation. 
We died and relived, but suddenly, 
We originated as God.
