Sentiments - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Two ways
To live

With full sentiment
Like the sun

In full blaze
and blood

or live like
the southern breeze

soothing, calm
and very cool

you may be proud
fight for your race and religion

but somewhere
down the sentiment

the same religious
or racial people hurt you most

same with the case
with your nation and clan

and your fight for them
becomes a worthless act

a crab becomes jealous
and pulls your leg

where you put in
in the same basket

let things pass
push yourself a little bit down

do not allow
sentiments to creep in

as all are worthless
and treat defeat

as you treat victory

both can shower you
with same kind of bliss

    Wonderful! It takes a certain maturity and continuous work to accept victory and defeat in the same way but it certainly opens the path for peace. (Report) Reply
