A Letter To Humanity


It’s so silent in and around
All thinks it’s not my way
My pave leads me to my family
I will be silent till it breaks
I will keep mum if someone killed
I will be silent if a girl molested
I will escape if some riot breakup
I will be murmur if corruption occurs
I will protect mine if nature reacts
I will vote and I will relax
I will work and I will earn
But I will entertain as I wish
I ‘am projected instead of us
I am in a circle of my’’ F’’
I need to live and I need to survive
Rest is not my concern
I is the base and I is the downfall
Where need to build a WE, to be in a paradise
Come out of the shell and be in a society
So that will learn the sense of society
Or one day I’ will stand alone
And that will perish,
At the point will end this society
Be a human to be a human being….

    A very good concept on which this piece is based....the truth has been spelt out....people are concerned primarily
    with their own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others.....so let me quote what we need to do
    as let us understand what our own selfish genes are up to, because we may then at least have the chance to upset their designs. [Richard Dawkins (Report) Reply

    I am in a circle of my’’ F’’
    And 'F stands for: - Family, Friends, Foes, Fantasies, Frustrations, Fatigues, and above all the Faith. (Report) Reply

    In the second attempt I am reading this poem once more and understands the social concern given in the poem by the good poet having such a nice observation of the society fast moving where human security is neglected and no one is dared to assist a person in such a difficult situation. It is wonderful poem and societal concern is a subject taken by the poet in beauty of the words she created. (Report) Reply

    The I definitely spells EGO all around..............unconcerned and devastating..........rams the community-society! ! (Report) Reply

    We are all obsessed with our own selves.....! We seek shelter in a glass chamber, when the world around us sobs and grieves! Others' problems are never our concern. Man should undergo a radical change in his lopsided attitude to life and learn to see those around us as our own brethren! A great message! (Report) Reply

    The poetess pinpoints the limitation of the individual in the society which have so much problems and evading habits of individuals in such circumstances which is the route cause of evils that are not questioned. It is a beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Love for being self-centric and futility of such an attitude have been brought out in an artistically subtle manner. Thanks (Report) Reply

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
