Not Self Before - Poem by Hasmukhlal Amathalallal

Not self before

Wednesday, June 2018

whoever has taken the shelter of "I"
he will try with arrogance and fly
in the dreamy land
and never try to be a friend

one must ask
what is his task?
if an answer comes in affirmative
you must never choose to be selective

No one can awaken anybody
unless one realizes in body soul
that it is his sacred mission
and he shall perform it with zeal and realization

if you are trying to prove another way round
nothing shall be found
nothing shall be left to display
except to show the arrogance in its own way

it is better to for self
and open the generosity and knowledge shelf
for the people to go in for harmony and peace
and put the curtain down in hatred and uneasy life

Hasmukh Amathalal Mehta
