Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


<<Civilization


Close your eyes fast
And see yourself to land on the surface of this beautiful earth
Full of long and wide meadows with different blades of grass
And vast stretches of woods full of green trees
Hanging from their boughs variety of fruits
With different colors shapes and sizes
Before that just think a bit
You are a creature too among millions
And you are not aware of any religion and any politics
You roam free, wild
Life is just like a dream
You eat, drink, dance and play
You just know time is your playmate
And you have to live with him
And you know not lust or greed
Sense of ownership did not enter into your mind
You are truly a holy soul and a nature's child
No comparison, no competition
You are fully content with whatever you are along with
Sadness knows not your heart
This state of life you lead just before you start possessing
Claiming things as of yours
You let politics enter into your life
Your simple and joyous life gone
You are growing with making rules to subjugate others
To snatch away their rights
But you throw away your peace
Next you create boundaries for your own safety
But others are provoked to pull them down
Then you bring up religion to bind people with morality
At the cost of your all freedom and liberty
And men become rebellious
Or too fanatics
And sitting upon heaps of chaos
You tell me shouting that this is your civilization
I never wished to belong to it the product of mismanagement
Of your evil desires, ill wishes and crook design
Give me back my original world
Simple and innocent
And get out from here with your all nonsense advancements
And leave me with peace
I want only peace! !

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
