All Treasures Ain’t Worth This Oppression By Hafiz Shirazi

All treasures ain’t worth this oppression.
All pleasures ain’t worth one transgression.
Not even seven thousand years of joy
Is worth seven days of depression.

نی دولـت دنیا به ستـم می‌ارزد
نی لذت مستی‌اش الـم می‌ارزد
نـه هفت هزار ساله شادی جهان
این محنت هفت روزه غـم می‌ارزد
