Fight The Disease Not The Diseased - Poem by Rekha Mandagere

When you look at mankind
Often you find
Some are generous
Some are greedy
Some are cruel
Some are kind
Some are wild
Some are mild
Lust, envy, greed, cruelty and ego
Have history since long long ago
Which are like chronic diseases
Ever acting on the noble souls
And are most dangerous
Than all the wild whirl winds
Engaging  mankind in treacherous
Acts that drive him to the abess
But every life born is precious
Save man from wrong passion
With your love and compassion
By fighting the disease not the diseased!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Free humans from negative feelings and elevate him to the noble thoughts of divine.

    Great wisdom here, Rekha.
    Wuite often we find the person, the one who has the abnormal behaviour, rather than the disease in the person.
    We can make a difference even sometimes simple through our statements. Just saying: I did not like the unkind thing you did just now, rather than: you are always so unkind, can make a difference.
    I really liked this very wise thought provoking poem.
