Discrimination - Poem by Saheb Mohapatra

Man, 'Why are these names,
He, she, I, you, my, yours? '
'Why so vulgar adjectives,
Black, white, rich, penurious,
Deemed God's words,
But emanating enormous tears.

Man, learn from the dark night,
For it never discriminates,
Learn from a tree,
Who, to every lone man, blissfully sheds,
Learn from the mighty sun,
For it lights, leaving no path behind.

If partiality be immortal
And keep breeding here,
It shall ever cast its shadow on men's future.

    If partiality be immortal
    And keep breeding here,
    It shall ever cast its shadow on men's future. Really super composition. Each line is memorable and meaningful. Nicely penned.

    Discrimination of any sort is contemptible.....! But unfortunately we see people being discriminated in all spheres of life! If one is able to see the other as himself.. there won't be any question of discrimination! A very mature write Saheb! (Report)Reply
