I am a human


Talked in a literary group
people said, at this age all have left mindset
I felt, and I was a leftist

shared some romantic couplets among friends
they said you are in love
I concurred, and I was in love

shouted slogans in a protest
they said its rebel
I blazed, and I was a rebellion

talked about importance of religion
they said its conservative
I thought over, and I was a conservative

walked in a garden, gave some words to the beauty of nature
they said you are a poet
I blushed, and I was a poet

sitting alone, contemplating who I really am?
somewhere inside, humanity is carving to hear
and I cried, I am a human.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
