Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

Who is superior?


Journey begins with a mother.
Journey ends in mother earth.

When the beginning and ending of journey is same
Why he struggle his whole life to prove he is superior.
In what way one is superior to others?

The entry and exit of life is same for all.
When the death doesn't see the difference.
When the graveyard make no difference.
Why the difference when alive.
Is it just because
No choice left for the lifeless body to do anything?

Whats the use of that life
Which looked only the welfare of self.

Whats the use of that life
Who lived only for self.

Whats the use of that life
For the happiness of self made the others life a hell.

What the use of that life
Only hatred you are leaving behind in memories of others.
A few caring and heartfelt words could have done much.
By doing it you are loosing nothing.
Instead you find enjoyment in pelting stones.
No eyes would shed a single drop of tears on your death.

One should be kind hearted enough to see others pain too.
If you cannot give any happiness, at least don't make others lives a hell.
You live and let others also live.
In the eyes of God no one is superior or inferior.
Why the difference here?

    Being kindhearted is really necessary. However, nobody is perfect so the best a human being can do is to try their best. Liked the message behind these verses a lot. (Report) Reply

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
