    ''Creativity''

    Life is like a dark tunnel, open yet dark,
    Hope was but a brazen spark.

    To ponder over and old, greasy yet brilliant oil lamp
    Acts like a bright star in the room so dark and damp.

    It brings the withered to the survival
    Needs nothing in return from this instinct full of power.

    It lightens up the blackness and makes the world gay,
    That lets everyone close to new hopes and praise.

    A creative being is always waited for,
    He acts like a candle and wakes those in deep snores.

    He keeps his eyes wide open without fearing the time of day,
    Highlights the goods and evils, whatever comes its way.

    All those who are sad, upset, or lack the warmth of breath
    For them, he is the hope of life in chaos and death.

    He helps them fight their inner thoughts,
    Brings them out of those so-called knots.

    Takes his time to awestruck an audience, then moves on like a shooting star,
    Leaving a mark on the hearts left amazed, still gazing to the right and far.

    Ancestors create, so descendants live and feed and sleep.
    Hence the past present and future bear a story so deep.


    Inventing is no hidden truth, yet a mystery to my country.
    I say its a tale from the past, a black and white history.
    It's time we add some colour to it, make things more interesting.
    Humanity salutes the ones who are great at creating.

    Humanity breeds, with its needs and greed.
    Hands full of demands and empty souls indeed.


    Almighty Lord promises us all with sustainable ways to survive.
    But the Lord works through his men, who ideate and revive.


    Quietly they sit down to work and quietly their minds originate.
    They know they have the Almighty's backing towards a purposeful fate.


    The Lord creates man, and man innovates the world around him.
    More practical his innovation, better a future across the brim.

    Creativity imparts new colour, fresh face to the land

    Makes the times of the past a forgone and forgotten brand


    A creator is someone who never ceases to amaze

    He replenishes the growing world with ever modern ways


    Innovation is his tool, keeps him busy with the creations he mends

    For the world seldom cares for the old and forsaken trends


    Always feeling motivated with his works, he keeps building and sharing

    Does not expect an equal reward, but does return it with more caring

    i dont understand what is happening exactly in this contest . the contest holder asked for translation for a piece of work , people here are bringing some poetry whiche is theirs or not , and putting it here . the others from the 4 rated entries have used translation programs and that is clear from the context and formulation of theirs sentences . weird as it is but i had to write something. this is a project for translation and not for creativity.

      This is not a project of simple translation. When you are translating a poem you have to maintain the flow in a poetic way. The translation of a poem should make sense as a poem and should look and sound like a poem. Most people here have simple passed the poem through Google Translate (the obvious and the easier way WHICH the contest holder could have used himself instead of making it worth $300) and the smarter ones have passed the Google Translated version through "Article Spinners" . THIS IS a project of creativity/understanding of poetry+translation abilities and not just the project for mere translation.

    Innovator, the inventor he is, forever satisfied and content
    His house is filled with joy, no room for resentment

    He knows, he realizes, he is not the one to demand
    He gives and gives away to the world considering it God's command

    The visions and ideas a mind like his will create
    A source of eternal happiness is what one can relate

    Sharing this wealth with people may be a value long lost
    But the hope for progress it brings keeps filling the cost

    Hello, Please check my Sealed Entry #51 There are two jpg files and complete poem has been translated (but for some reason, it is showing page 2 first). I have made a deliberate attempt to maintain the poetic rhythm as well as the intended meaning of the original poem.
    Disclaimer: This is not a google translated version of the translation.

    الإبداع


    يا من يسألني عن سر الإبداع

    أرأيت إلى الشمعة تنزف أثناء الليل..

    تبدد شبراً من ظلمة غرفة..

    تنطفئ بلا صوت أو ضجة

    ذلك يا من تسألني..

    ذلك إبداع الشمعة

    الشمعة تخلع عنها أطماع الدنيا ..

    أنانيتها تصهر في لحظة مجد

    تذوب ولا تأخد شيئاً

    ذلك سر الإبداع..
    creativity
    O who asks me about the
    secret of creativity
    See the candle bleed during the night ..
    An inch of the darkness of a room is scattered.
    It turns off without sound or noise
    So who are you asking me ..
    That's the creativity of the candle
    The candle gives off the ambitions of the world.
    Her selfishness melts in a moment of glory Melt and take nothing
    That is the secret of creativity.
