hasmukh amathalal

Gold Star - 23,623 Points (17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Humanity suffers


I went into mosque and churches
Prayed earnestly with frantic search
“Appear before or whisper some words” I pleaded
“No my son, search within” replied lord

I could follow nothing’
It gave indication of something
Why was I searching some where?
When He was around and here

This gave me eternal joy
It was pleasant to hear and enjoy
“Give no excuse or reason for someone to annoy”
Heart is temple to see through with no decoy

Kabir* was right in asserting
“Follow heart dictates and never desert”
The inner call is your real strength
God may respond if you utter in any wave length

In fact we are great villain
Greed and unhappiness is adopted to gain
Real happiness and enjoyment is in giving
You may feel eternal strength while forgiving

Are we not forgetting one aspect?
Humanity suffers from our neglect
We enjoy at the cost of others
By giving pain and causes to bother

Kabir* ancient saint known for his verses

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
