Treasure Island

Mohammad Akmal Nazir

(Bahraich, U.P. India)

Is man really courageous?

Is man really courageous?
He who says so
Must be lunatic.
Man fears life,
He fears death,
He fears disease,
He fears failure
And sometimes his success also,
He fears the truth,
He fears honesty,
He fears God
But on his terms,
And above all
He fears himself.
So why should he be called
A courageous?

    It is because, we die to live, not live to die. The history has witnessed that our forefathers lived their to die, so they were, of course, not a bit afraid of it. Neither disease touch them nor failure meet them, because they would eat to live, not lived to eat, and they never hope more than their efforts and deeds. (Report) Reply
