Respect Life... - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

From this darkness, I see the outside world perfectly,
I can see how people cover their face under the mask!
How much they try to show what they are not,
They are confused all the time as to what to perform where.

They never allow realities to surface out,
It appears as if they have mastered this art since birth,
To them this world is mere a stage,
where they are performing fine art to earn.

For them this Life is amusement park,
their struggle to survive is everything,
they ignore the feelings of the others.
O God, show them tonight, how devil lays the trap.

How the lights of this dawn will be snatched,
and they will be in the darkness yet again.
If they do not stop mocking at the life,
the death will take the account and will show no mercy.

Topic(s) of this poem: life and death

    We live in a world of make believe! Man doesn't take life seriously! All he wants is means to live on! Somehow he jostles himself forward, never caring to bother those who are relegated or pushed to the rear! Selfishness is the cardinal trait in him! ! Had he realized that life is more than just living for oneself! A poem of profound thoughts (Report) Reply

    one life and one death.. and we have to work out all the things before these two collide. really, life is not an amusement park, rather death is jeering at us each time we mock life. wise conception wisely expressed... thought provocking inking. many thanks. (Report) Reply
