hasmukh amathalal

Gold Star - 25,827 Points (17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

The world is suffering


If I say I am seer
People will not hear
Offer no cheers
Shed no tears

If I say I am saint or sage
They will write about full page
Appreciate and adore
Work for people’s welfare

If I claim to be God
Entire population will flood
To my place of worship
To keep afloat their ship

Today we need cheaters
Not love raiser but haters
As large population has turned opportunist
They follow blindly on cartoonist

They pay little attention
Over the report of adulteration
Over the cases of rapes and exploitation
They want fast money with quick rotation

“Exploiters may always have field day”
Where greedy are awaiting to find their day
The cheaters may enjoy at their cost
The result is “World is suffering most”
