Not Human Alone...All Living Things Workaholic - Poem by jodlizbeth dominic

Who?
A small sparrow
I thought that
Happened something
Poor bird
I looked upon that
Through my window
She was rolling
through the small
Long leaf of a Plantain
Right, believe
Bathing, I noticed
With water drops in
That wet leaf
She was trying to make
More attractive herself
By that water layer there
I began to think
Why she trying to perform
That much, already cute
But working as like a man
Hard works for eating
Looking after, cage making
Mother bird, how giving food
How wonderful!
World, filled with workers
Not only man
Animals, plants, birds
Confronting difficulties
To lead better life here
Look the creeper plant
Finding out the nearby
Medium for climbing up
If we cut off that helper
Will try again and again
Protecting palnts with care
Fruits-flowers like pet
Existing the world with
A huge number of
Workaholic creatures
Who are the members
Of the game played
For triumph of this world
Not trivial the other
Needs human, whole the
Workaholic
Anyway, all of us are
Ending here alike
This earthly life
Don't be pride human
Will degrade in this world
That sparrow and we one day

    one day while seeing a small sparrow bathing in a wet plantain leaf after raining, she feels that water like a pond for human being, I wrote this poem, like a lesson, sparrow and pride human are equal in losing life here. (Report)Reply
