Glass Floor - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

The Life of this world is on the glass floor
And we all keep looking at the reflection
Of self in it and presume we are not

We wish to see beautiful things
Smile, love, happiness, togetherness
Yet we seldom polish or clean it

We want others to clean our glass
Hardly have we kept our body and soul clean
From the dearth of worldly material things

We complain that the glass is tilted on our side
when we bend not slightly because of ego
We command and demand rather than earn it

I see my true reflection in this glass floor
to try and correct my position
By adjusting myself to its changing colors

How do you see this glass floor?
A self-reflection or just another piece to use

    A brilliant observation on life, as we want so much for ourselves, even our reflection has to be perfect, but we need to think of becoming better people to embrace our family and friends and to give is the greatest gift of all! (Report) Reply

    I am reminded of a saying, while reading your poem: [[ Be the change you want to see in the world. ]] by Mohandas Gandhi. Your poem evokes clearly the same wisdom. A great write! (Report) Reply
