The World Is Nothing

The world is nothing
but a show:
lions leap through hoops of fire,
some heads get snared in a noose,
and my finger slips through the ring you gave me
when I was simple

Your poem is massively intense. From woman view first, then man kind . it takes a lion to jump through a ring of fire, getting burnt is physical price for the jump. Hearing history about it many yeas and many mouths later is the reward . You are (sheer Zaneh Irani).
