English Poetry Tearful Blessings




In effort to hide the tearful eyes, sleeves got wet,

Thorn is not in the sleeves, this taunt is happened.


Blood dripping liver and the torn heart, always throwing taunts,

For hiding self from the cruel universe, this compensation granted.


Always kept in writing on the chest, to prevent the memory from betraying,

Handwriting is messed up to that extent, caravan of children marched.


In the process of guiding the messenger, himself reached the destination,

Disgrace from that infidel is tolerable, from everyone it happened. 


When the grief crossed the limit, it transforms in to the remedy,

Hearing this when collected the griefs, a sacred house this body has manifested.


From the gain of tearful-blessings, treasure is blooming hitherto,

Reincarnation is compulsory for charity, this announcement is happened.


Preacher exclaimed, at last, how fearless he has become,

Nervous death went back, supreme horizon then manifested.
