If I have the power to remake
I’ll change everything which is fake
The attitude of people towards life
towards environment, poverty, religion
and their consumption of natures gift
without sharing equally,
which will lessen their strife.
Then I’ll remake the nature of law about death
Let death come with all its novelty
to carry on nature’s law
Let old age keep its
innocence, fearlessness, and cheer
like a child
it will make death less fearful and
make its impact mild.
There comes a stage or rather age in life
where aspiration, expectations, and needs
all merge into each other and you aspire,
expect and need a world,
without hunger, poverty and sickness
without boundaries, discrimination and terrorism
a world full of
love, compassion, and friendship
a world where religion is compatibility and respect for each other
a religion which embraces every one with open heart.
Is it asking too much ?
Why it is that
foolish people are compared with donkeys
and not with
cow, zebra , giraffe or monkeys
the answer is simple
as you may say
both don’t know
when to keep mum and when to bray.
( No offense intended for donkeys, they are lovely and hard-working . They are just stubborn, single-minded and will go to extreme lengths to get what they want, especially when someone indicates “No, you can’t have this. “)
When roasted on slow fire
Rubbed with butter or lemon and salt
It is a delightful food to savor
So serve it to the person who is hungry and
relishes it with fervor
Than to a person who eats it without gratitude
As if doing it a favor
Soma, this is for you.
