Human Rights


If you were a child of a beggar
You would understand better what is human right.

It is normal to exist rich and poor people
Cause they are not equal from point of view of quality
But huge gap between the rich and the poor
Is the seed of hostility.

Please try to understand how a person feels
When he is hurt.

Why have you born? Why will you die?
Have you thought it over?
How much time is left for you?
Have you figured it out?

For us scarcity of time is more
Than that of wealth on earth!
Only kindness can bring peace on earth.

    Great, heartfelt and moving. I am an advocate for those in the Darfur region of Sudan. So poems of this nature always seem to peek my interest, and stir my inner person. (Report) Reply

    What simple-minded drivel, Asif! And the comments offered by your admirers approach the zenith of nonsense. Love of money is the root of all evil? A nice slab? A rewrite is in order, Asif! Don't be misled by the inane comments! (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
