Oh, my dark soul!
the company of friends you love come and go
you continuously satisfy the demands of your dark ego
the pleasure you find causes you to crave for worldly goods
you enjoy dining and laughing that could change your mood
you become more discontented and less human
what a pity your soul becomes rebellious and dominant
power, wealth, and prominence all the time you hanker
fearless of your final departure you never even care
hankering for the temporal world darkens your sight
the remembrance of the Lord is forgotten by your heart
you cannot waste time for the worldly life is not permanent
Never take the Beloved for granted every single moment
be mindful of the One and the All-Existing
in His Mighty Hands He holds everything!
