No Need To Show - Poem by Hasmukhlal Amathalallal

No need to show and observe in these final days
For all practical purpose you have stayed away
Visited no orphanages or helped any poor
Just spent all the days in visiting the stores

It may be your routine job to go in for livelihood
Yet the main object behind it was never understood
It needed little time to go in for some good charity
As enough was given to you by the grace of almighty

You still have hunger for collecting more
You opt for all methods to get it and explore
In fact there is no need for extra accumulation
The hidden wealth should have gone for circulation

Praise and power come from the inner strength
You may have it yet remain as beggar till the death
The thrust will never be quenched but fuel more
You may be leading life of an animal therefore

Some of the festivals are meant to address for self
Even if done nothing for others still ask for help
Almighty is so much gracious to grant such relief
If you sincerely pray and bow head with belief

It is not necessary to visit any temple or church
Some of the answers you get if silently search
Inner soul may respond to request and show the way
You may find happiness if shown readiness to pray

Little compassion is must for fellow brethrens and animals
They deserve full attention and care upon their arrivals
Almighty has blessed them to visit beautiful land
We got to be sympathetic and rush to them as friend

We should lead life in such a manner
So as not to disturb or harm others
If you can’t show any kind of sympathy
At least believe or develop some kind of decency

He has always blessed those persons
Who have helped others with various reasons?
If they can’t extend material help in any way
At least show peace with and passion and stay

“Don’t snatch bread if you can’t give”
That will be biggest crime and find no reprieve
If you have no words to reciprocate or forgive
Shake head in affirmative and believe

    Aptly said..Charity is not for showing, inner compassion is must.
