A Song


My colleagues, let me sing
Sing a song of, love and grace.
Once Yusuf, by his brothers
was hurled in, a well wildly.
To their father told a lie that
Herd of wolves ate son Yusuf.
Stained dress was not a proof
For the beloved father Yakub
Weary travelers searching water
Looked in well for some in well
But seeing Yusuf took him up and
Went to Egypt and sold for sum.
Lucky Yusuf King’s favourite
Later became minister there,
Once brothers came in Egypt
Seeking help in, starvation.
Gracefully Yusuf helped brothers
Gave his dress to present father
Realizing odour of Yusuf, Yakub
Smiled and thanked Almighty.
By the Grace of Almighty they
Rejoined in reward of goodness.

    Yusuf was ready to forgive his brothers who plotted against his life! He did not entertain any grudge for them and was even willing to help them in their need! Thus Yusuf's goodness brought all the family together! A great lesson to be learned through this story! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
