Homo sapiens


Motives at times so noble, at times so base.
Jealousy and Satisfaction have human face.

Tongue coated with sweet honey, yet so tart.
Cruelty and Kindness have got human heart.

Intelligence and morality, little brain they flood.
But satan circulates human mind like blood.

Weaker than satan, sinner if likened to angel.
But a free will and inside always a fierce duel.

A bunch of contradictions! a set of antonyms!
But still greatest of all creations, a Paradigm!

    Beautiful poem affirming the fact once again that man is a jumble of contradictions! He is at once light and shade.... the thesis and antithesis.... yet who can contradict that he is the crown of creation! ! ! (Report) Reply
