Compassion towards humanity – need of the hour
As I take a look around myself, I see
Life, so full of sufferings and strife;
Let me render a service towards humanity,
Before I welcome the sunset of my life.
What I see is natural calamities, like floods,
And opposites like rivers drying up,
Earthquakes, cyclones, global warmings,
Also man – made disasters coming up.
Train derailments, hunger, poverty, disease,
Murders, corruption, rapes and theft,
Terrorists inflicting fear in human minds
Nations rising against each other, humanity bereft.
Educational institutes making money
Through donations and exorbitant fees,
How will our youth address the problems of tomorrow,
Will not humanity come down to its knees ?
We need to think beyond ourselves,
And render service to humanity with love, now so rare,
Let’s lift the downtrodden, feed the hungry,
Clothe the poor, with dedication and care.
There is need to do so much in life,
God give me strength and means to cast
a spell and heal the wounds of humans
And give them love and happiness to last.
No small act of kindness is insignificant,
Do all tiny acts of love and care;
If you help or heal only one soul it’s no less
It makes a lot of difference to the one, whom you cared.
Save earth, save flora and save the fauna,
Save farmers, save agriculture and save the nature;
Save rivers, save humanity and save the eco – system,
And towards the poor and needy do a special favour.
