I Am A Human Being - Poem by Abdul Wahab

If I say I am handsome with charm and grace
Tall and dark with the most brilliant eyes and face
You will not believe
If I say I am the ugly of the ugliest
You may believe in


If I say I have an unbelievable potentiality
I can do a havoc in the field of poetry
You will not believe
If I say I am the dull of the dullest
You may believe in

If I say I have a strong character of honesty
I have a heart full of kindness and mercy
You will not believe
But if I say I am the cruel of the cruelest
You may believe in

If I say I have a fair mind unbiased clean
A soul as white as a paper unwritten
You will not believe
If I say I am the lousy crook of the crook est
You may believe in.

If I say I am the most marginalized
The most deprived, the most victimized
You will not believe
If I say I am a servant, a slave, born to serve
You may believe in.

If I say I am different, uncommon
I have different attitude and opinion
You will not believe
If I say I am the dissident of the most dissident
You may believe in.

If I say I am a human being
I have a wish and a desire,
To roam to fly to rise higher,
Need equality, justice and honor,
Some one to love and some one to care
Do you believe me?

    How unkind this mankind is,
    It never sees potential positive aspect in others but always looks at negatives!
