Umid Ali writes


Love a grief
Call a sorrow
Give a place from the bottom of your heart
To a pain
It encourages you
To happiness!

If you want to see the happiness
In the morning
Face the sun

Divide the keen,
Halve it,
Dedicate one of them to your ineffective life,
Keep the other one for the happiness.

Keep your tears,
Don’t listen to your heart.
One day it becomes
Pearl and diamond…
And a happiness!
