Man Wishes To See...... - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

Where there is death, man sees a life.
Where there is cowardice, man sees self-preservation.
Where there is unnecessary violence,
man sees no other possible option.
Where there is injustice, man sees fate.
Where there is no answer, man sees God.
Where there is greed, man sees the wealthy.
Where there is theft, man sees the poor.
Where there is sadness, man searches for hope.
Where there is hope, man sees happiness.
Where there is wrong-doing, man sees everything but himself.
But where there is love, man is blind.

    Very outstanding piece you have here! ! Everyone will be astounded when they are finished reading this. A great way of showing the views of man and life. And to love in a way we are blind, we are weak to it's power and what it can do to us. (Report)Reply
