I (My Tribute To Sufi Poets) - Poem by Soma Mukherjee

In a world ruled by religions, caste, nationalities,
Where there is a constant fight on whose god is better
I am an atheist
For me my work,
My faith in all things good
And understanding for what I don’t follow is
My religion, my caste and my nationality

In this world where you are what your job is
Where you are worshipped and followed for the money you have
I am a free soul
For me my working for causes,
Spreading awareness about socially relevant issues
Keeping the spark of humanity alive is
My job, my money, my investment

In this world where humans are known by the labels they wear
Where your pedigree is more important than your work
I am anonymous
For me my labels are smile, compassion, warmth of my heart and an indomitable spirit

In a world where chaos over a place of worship is more important than a missing child
Where a woman being abused is a daily event
I am the odd one out
Yes you heard it right
For I would prefer to build a school, an orphanage or a hospital over any place of worship any day
For I would rather go and do something about human rights because everything else is inane

Yes I am a misfit
Not of this world
But I am
And since I am I will do what I can
And till my body and soul are one
I will keep on thinking, inspiring,
Enjoying the silly
Play with words and laugh and cry with them
Pamper my mind with good reads
Pamper my body with good health
Pamper my soul with good work
And live this wonderfully amazing life spreading all the happiness I can.
