    All these talks about circle reminds me a poetry of famous Urdu poet Amjad Ialam Amjad.

    I dare to translate first few starting lines from that.

    We people,
    walk in the circles
    by walking in circles
    circles grows big
    distance doesn't shorten!

    How about:
    • We people walk in circles.
      By walking in circles the circles grow bigger,
      But the distance between us
      Doesn't lengthen.
