hasmukh amathalal

Humanity may be the answer


I loved the named and tried to view
Asked about its existence to few
'No, we will never compromise on religion'
But same views were heard in every region

Yes, we have faith and shall hold
'He is the only one and savior' I was told
I did not dispute their belief
As it provided me immense relief

I was glad for one reason
His existence was recognized by everyone
Only it spelled different name
There was hard fight for supremacy to claim

I tried to pick thread
They were all led
By one belief
To provide the real relief

We are brethren
So there should least concern
Love is to rule all over
Religion must provide bond and shelter

Fine nothing wrong in it
So long love reigns and meets
The aspiration of people
With no hatred and trouble

I saw people looking at sky
They had only one question to ask for why
Why were they so helpless?
Why had they all to face?

I hoped one day they may
Get all answers and way
To live peacefully with one religion
Humanity may be the answer for union
