The universe we own // Madiha Rehman
Beyond our cramped vision
where our materialistic mindset fails,
begins the real beauty,
we call the Universe.
Here and there, scattered, are our priorities,
dragging and holding us back from seeing the
gold that our Universe possess.
There are these glistening stars
and high above they lie.
Shinning over the mighty sky,
they astonish us with the beauty
no physical being can claim to possess.
Waking up every morning, none of us realize
that if there weren’t the Sun and the Moon
we couldn’t differentiate between a single
day and night.
It amazes me when I think,
how perfectly each and everything is shaped.
From the wide galaxies to the tiny ponds
He has planned everything so meticulously to make
the cycle of life go, on and on.
The reverent doesn’t absolutely end here
because it swims through the length of
the waterfalls, which truly possess
what is called as a natural bliss.
Ticking on my table is the clock
which, for the past 7 years, has reminded me
of the days and nights that have passed my window
yet failed to gain my attention, buried under the
piles of books.
Each day makes our Earth grow old, and leaves us
lesser time to live with something that we own.
Nevertheless, a day of realization is no late because as they say, it is better late than never.
