You who wrote

And writes the creation verse.

All who wrote your book are

Behind you now… in the back.

They wrote you, but you write them.

Erase what they wrote.

Existence is nothing but

The trace of your footsteps.

 

You and your female are one.

 

Listen not but to your heart.

Your female is you,

And you are part of her glory.

If you burn in her light and fire,

You become the echo of her being,

And Existence becomes your echo.

 

Listen not but to your heart.

Your female is you,

Your land then your heaven.

By Tunisian Poet Ahmad Omar Zaabar
