The Great Wall

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِي

It is not that simple;
of letting the world go;
if the soul creates an illusionary wall.

If gold and stone is not the same to you;
no rest shall you find;
for inner peace is attained through detachment;

Woe o soul!;
for creating this illusion;
non existing walls of brilliance;

Now I know;
this is what happens when there is no spirit;
and only letters;

Four corners; four mute walls;
staring menacingly at me;
inside is prison, outside is prison;
Where shall I go?



Bukan semudahnya
Melepaskan dunia
Jika jiwa mencipta tembok kepalsuan

Empat penjuru, empat tembok bisu
memandang kejam padaku
Di dalam penjara, di luar penjara
Manakah tempatku mengadu..


-Peace be to you-
