Animals And Birds - Poem by shakil ahmed
Animals and Birds
Our every step towards success
Depends upon God’s mercy.
We are feeble creatures
With lots of weaknesses
Too incapable to do good for us
Without His kind favour.
We are worse than animals and birds
They do not harm themselves
Like the evil human beings.
They do not wage deadly wars
Against their own race.
But we humans are too base
That we wage war against our race.
Animals have firm faith upon god.
They do not save for their future.
Unnecessarily we gather wealth
Adopting dishonest and unlawful means.
We pretend to be a believer of God
In the moments of sheer misery
When we overcome the bad situation
We forget the mercy of God.
Our life is a one time gift of God
But we spend it
Awfully pursuing wicked things.
Animals are calm and quiet
Don’t do wicked things
Like the evil human beings
Had I been an animal
It would have been far better
Than to be a human being
Who pokes his nose in evil matter.
Birds are beautiful when they fly
In the expanse of vast sky.
They don’t harm the ozone layer
Like the supersonic aircraft.
They don’t moan for not being rich,
To the degraded human beings,
Lessons of life, they can teach.
When birds soar in the high sky
It seems, they are going closer to Almighty,
And in this way
They teach us lessons of piety.
They are far above tension and frustration
That human suffers.
Happily they sit on the branch of a tree
And begin to chatter.
They sing songs of joy
In a melodious tone
But the wretched human beings
Only sit and moan.
Had I been a bird, living in a nest
I would have led a life full of zest.
