>>>Whom Do I Belong To?


Sometimes I wonder
If there is a better species than me
But I found after so much search and hard work
Human being is the supreme
Whom I belong to……..

Then how I could do the deeds
Which can be done by the lower species.
I have the great responsibility and duty
To uplift the human dignity
As I belong to the same community.

How could I believe in those ideas
Where my humanism is wishfully lowered?
I could not bow down to any thing, to any one
The planets, the stars, the moon and the sun
All are suppose to serve the purpose of mine

I have the intellect
I have the language
I have the dream
All are the entities…supreme
So I belong to……..
Super human being.

To believe in this
Fits the things
Makes me high
Puts me on top
Explain the idea of humanism best
No other things than the human being is the greatest.
Whom I belong to….
So whom does God make his friend other than me?
For all these super speciality
I am the supreme
I belong to ….
Super human being.

    The well written poem and poet's opinion is a self motivation and it pertains to humans and humanity and our obligation to the society. This is a very motivating poem and its value is immense in a society of different conflicts where human beings are dragged to in knowing or unknowing circumstances. (Report) Reply

    This is very true! and I guess it reminds people what we can do and what we're doing! it's true when they say 'with great power, comes great responsibilty'..nice poem man! (Report) Reply

    The real Human is humble and kind to all creations. We all have a place in this world and nobody is better then the other. Keep up with your search. (Report) Reply

    realizing that you are the eldest itself will give you a status to be clung to. nice.
    your place once was my visiting place. (Report) Reply

    Interesting perspective. As an Atheist I do not hold the idea of a Supreme Being - instead I believe in Humans as the supreme beings so far.....in an evolutionary sense.
    This debate is far too long for this poetry site though.
    I shall read your other work and comment as I find it. Thank you for sharing your work here. (Report) Reply

    Dear Wahab ji, You first stanza is marvelous! Yes Human-being is the supreme though we wonder sometimes! Your 2nd stanza us also equally good as sometimes man will do barbarian acts so you are apt.

    In 3 stanza is my favorite one. Yes We need to uplift our souls so we may not surrender to natural entities! Superb... In stanza 4, your defining a human being is stylish and appreciable. yes your poem ended in optimism!

    All together, your poem, I rate it superb! A1 rating + a big treat! Ha! ha! (Report) Reply
