Not Preaching Alone - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Not preaching alone
Sunday,14th October 2018

It looks absurd
when we use the words
in an artificial way
and then stay cool

the love and peace has always remained the desire
for each and every individual on the earth and admired
who will want that peace is disturbed?
and whole life remains troubled

God sent many messiahs and messengers
what have we made their fate here?
but mind one thing
they were sent by an almighty to profess and propagate with the single aim to bringbrotherhood and harmony

they had no interest in their own
but their sacrifices remained well-known
even today, their teachings have become immortal
we accept their role as important in our life as an individual

let our approach not confined to the preaching alone
it may come as cyclone
and subside when intensity has gone
the work, later on, seems to be undone

We are all human beings
and always try to bring
in our own way, the things most needed
let us accept that most of the things are not heeded
