Don't Be Sick! Get Well Soon


As long as I call myself as a human,
I am all right…
As long as I call myself as a nation,
I am all right…
As long as I identify my blood group,
I am all right..
As long as I pick up the size of my undergarment,
I am all right…
As long as I go to the book of the face and chat with friends,
I am all right..
As long as I go to the competition and mingle with other competitors,
I am all right..
As long as I visit the houses of worship, color and culture,
I am sick and always look for the victims to get,
My confused mind to be doctored,
With hallucinations that are,
At least two thousand years old.
The glands may give up and no one can rescue,
From the ills of all these evil rogues,
When we fail to see another human,
As the fellow resident of the soulless planet.

    When we are all right people tend to always flock to us.
    But when we are not so good they stay away as far as they
    can. Be yourself and accept others for who they are. A thoughtful
    write. Thanks for sharing.

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
