Think Of Fellow Brethern - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

It is always good to think of fellow brethren
To think of their well being and closeness even
At each and every step their involvement and participation
Making it strong bond with emergence of good relation

It is of no use if you merely exist as human being
Many things are unexplored and you got to bring
Some change in approach to live together
Stay side by side for existence and to cater

We have lived peacefully for many years
It has long history of bloodshed with confounded fears
Our past is shrouded with mystery and tears
We have lost many precious lives called dears

World has narrowed down and come closer
We can’t be indifferent to orgy of violence and be looser
We must learn to stand together and live
Time is ripe for co-existence and to believe

What did we get in return for so many years?
Only misery, plight, deaths, hungers and fears
Forceful migration and displacement of ancestral land
How do we assess and evaluate our stand?

Time is to forget hatred and move forward?
Traditional rivalry to disappear and vow not to look backward
There is nothing much to gain from hostility and wars
We have come in long way and left them very far

I asked a friend of mine about the satisfaction one has
From causing harm and making personal chase
He said it is deep rooted and comes as natural
What is its use and advantage? No answer came as usual

I hardly find any one endorsing the continuation
Even hard elements want some respite and pause
They have seen the long those bloody years
Life is uncertain and still to live amidst fears

“Co-exist” lay more emphasis on it and insist
Do nothing contrary and persuade others to desist
World may prove beautiful place to enjoy and stay
Far from conflicts and peaceful life all the way

    A person who has experienced all and is ready to share with the world, 'co-existence' is the key. Marvelously put in simple words.

    Devah Sofia Lucus It is so important to be real and not talk in such a way that people can't understand or for self importance. Or to lord power over people who you deem weaker than you. Honesty is something more simple and humble and loving. To be loving in everything is true poetry.
