Poem on Human Nature in English


We Humans

We need corruption free country
but we are involved in corruption.

We want clean neighbourhood
but we are responsible for pollution.

We worship god day and night
but we don't follow their instructions.

We are educated
but we still believe in superstitions.

We hate politics
but we all are politicians.

We participate in movements
but we don't have compassion.

We are human
but we have crossed all limitations.

Monika Jain 'Panchhi'


I Can't Say I Was A Good Soul

After two and a half hour
Still on the chair
But didn't write anything yet
And I call myself a writer.

Even I have learned to walk
Now I know what is good and bad
But I didn't take steps against bad yet
And I call myself a human.

Yeah, I go to temples
I beg for mercy, I ask for happiness
I pray for myself not for you or anyone
And I call myself a true devotee.

I can see there is a thief
I know what is he gonna do
But I turn my face on other side
And I call myself a good civilian.

I know the meaning of appetite
Eating fast food cause I bought it
But I ignore a beggar
who may hungry from two days
And I call myself a rich man.

I know when I'm in pain
I come to you and share my feelings
But I don't ask how are you
And I call myself a true friend.

I know one day I'll go back into dirt
There will be my deeds with myself
And when God will ask what was I
I know I can't say I was a good soul.

Chetan Dheer

This dual character can be seen everywhere today. Society is changing rapidly and we humans are becoming more and more self centered with the passes of time.
