Omar was a genius

O how long that the world shall exist, without us
ای بس که نباشیم و جهان خواهد بود

No name and no sign will remain of us
نی نام ز ما و نی نشان خواهد بود

We didn’t exist before, and no problem there was
زین پیش نبودیم و نبد هیچ خلل

Hereafter, if we don’t exist, it will be the same, thus
زین پس چو نباشیم همان خواهد بود

Omar Khayyam (Persian Poet 1048–1131)
