This is a tribute piece I did to one of the lines said by Abu Al Ala'a Al-Ma'arri, namely one that he wrote on his tombstone. The loose translation would be "This is what my father brought on me, and I would bring it on no one" referencing life.

The script was influenced by Farsi script but I took lots of liberties with it. Enjoy
