All But None - Poem by V P Mahur

All wish for a good name
But none wants to be really good
All wish for having respect
But none wants to respect others

The person who once earned
A lot by dishonest practices
Wants to have honest worker
To hold his grand premises

All wish for a good fortune
But none prays for others to
All wish for a perfect health
But none cares for Nature

The fellow who never respects
Women’s dignity even a once
Wants honor for his daughter
And save her from evil chance

As we sow so we reap in life
How can we expect any good
Unless we make a fair strife
And give up all the falsehood
