Don't Hate Poison

We often
Hate poison
But today I wish
To make a confession
That poison
Is a part of our life procession
Willingly or unwillingly
Knowingly or unknowingly
Some time or other
Each and every person
Has to swallow poison

True lovers
Have to take without intention
The poison of separation
When they face
Deliberate detention
Imposed by bitter discrimination

Poor and weak human
Have to bear the poison
Of the atrocities
Of a few powerful inhuman

Old and humble person
Discarded by
Their own generation
Gulp the slow poison
Of anguish and frustration
Helplessly with their dying sight
Wish for a grainful attention

Graceful tender feminine
Filled with love and compassion
Gifted mothers
Of the whole creation
At each and every moment
Absorb the hateful poison
Of dishonour and suppression
Of unwanted sinful burden
Of forced prostitution
And are always treated
Without much care and attention

So before hating poison
Don't forget
It is an essential part of our creation
