Family members


All creatures are my family members.
This earth, this world is my home.
And at home there is no enemy,
As You know, even the enemy are received
As relatives here at home.
You can not find any fearful situation
Here at home, my dear.
This earth this world is my home
I am not afraid of anybody here.
All are my well-wishers here,
All are my family members here
There is always exchange of
Embraces and obeisances
Here at this home. All the members
Bear same five components
Earth sky light air water, O my dear!
All are within the three principles
Of goodness passion and ignorance.
My dear, You are my inseparable part
I am Your fragment You are the whole
Of all of us here at this home,
We are not at all separate from each other.
What I say that is applicable to all in this vast universe
I am nobody but telling on behalf of all
And I know You are within the hearts of all here .
We are all one and the same here
This earth this world is my home
Here, see, I stay free with all without fear or favor.

    gajanan this poem speaks a great truth, .. we are all family as the bible portrays
    the story of the first man and woman, our mother and father from long ago..
    what I find truly amazing is the population explosion of the human race...

    This is indeed the truth for many are still clouded in ego. We are connected. Will go well if recited on theater accompanied with some action. I can imagine it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
