The restless soul, the curious mind

Never rest till the truth they find

 

But it keeps eluding us

Escaping and evading us

 

Sleepless nights and starry skies

Hear O God! Our earnest cries

 

The fire burns, the heart beats fast

Is there hope for the seeker at last?

 

Prithee! slow down – hey!

Be patient if you may

 

Despair not if dreams shatter

Efforts – not results matter

(Dr Shehzad Saleem)
