Saudatu Kabir

The World I Live In

With two eyes I view the world

With my ears, my hearing sense

But above all with my heart I view

To love or hate my temporary home

And not to remember it when I’m gone

There’s wonder therein in the home I dwell

The sea the sky the sun and moon

All hold a glory worth to stare

Mankind my kith and kin, the king

Of all creatures big and small

The animals lower than the man

Are a wonder too, all of their kind

Though their brain is not as well developed

They search for food to eat, survive

And raise their young with love and care

The plants alive but motionless

Except when wind helps them to sway

From side to side shedding their leaves

Are all a wonder too from God

All in the world I call my home

God made the man above all beasts

And bade on man to rule the world

To be kind and just to all alive

Has man followed God’s request?

This I ask myself with a heavy heart
