Shah Jahan

“His Majesty Shihab ud-Din Muhammad Shah Jahan, the King, Warrior of the Faith, may God perpetuate his dominion and sovereignty”.

God doesn’t perpetuate dominion.
There is only one dominion.
The dominion of ALL.

God?
God flips over leaves,
folds them,
crushes them,
turns them to dust to the wind.
To this, they are gone.
They are off,
off to be something else.
Now, are they even themselves anymore?
Or one in the same with the ALL.
As they always have been.
Not their dominion.
Not your dominion.
Just dominion. One dominion.
ALL.
No sins, no lords, no losers, no winners.
ALL.

For tender human,
stuck in dichotomies, insecurities,
and powerlust,
God doesn’t perpetuate dominion.
There is only one dominion.
