Beautiful Hadith of Imam Hussain A.S On Life of This World

Imam Hussain (as) was asked: 

O 'the son of the prophet how is life going on? 
Imam replied: Life is going on , 
in such a way that I have a God over me, 
the hell-fire in front of me , 
death is looking for me, 
there is no escape of the Day of Judgement, 
I am taken as a hostage by my own deeds, 
things do not turn out to be the way I like , 
I cannot repel what I hate, 
The affairs are in someone else's hands. 
He tortures me if he likes and he forgives if he wishes. 
Therefore, is there anybody poorer than me? 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 116)
