You’re the One

Living in these mighty houses

Warm & sheltered from the rain

We spend precious moments striving

… for financial gain…

.

Then, we spend & waste, again

.

There’s not much we need,

There’s so much we want…

Many Lives are typed by strangers

In a fancy, heavy font…

.

We take so much space on Earth

Like the world’s page isn’t theirs

It belongs to us alone!

Let’s throw them a bone

.

In this land, if a man can’t hear,

a custom device is placed in his ear –

It restores the sense of sound.

So why there, on the other hand,

Cries for help are drowned out?

It’s a not so privileged land.

.

So why don’t we smile?

As much as we could…

We have stored a lot of wealth

Often, much more than we should…

.

Yes, the world is what it is

And we are what we are…

It takes one unselfish life –

Only One to raise the bar.

.

So, whose life will it be?

So, who is the One?

 

One Must Do what One Can


Boy Afghanistan

ONE needs to pray, and do what ONE can

Day after day – ONE step at a time…

Too many sorrowful tongues fall upon too many deaf ears

Too many listen to voices designed for war and not peace…

Too many eyes stay widely shut, too few remain wide open

Too many dreams, too many lives have now been killed & aborted.

Too many painful words too many people are speaking

In too many broken homes too many children are living,

Too many do not even try because it takes ‘too much’ to make it

Rather than learn from the best – they stay busy envying & hating…

Is it far more tragic that too many die?

…Or that far too many do not have a life?

How many answers can one receive when so many questions arise?

Too many pages provide for so many – waaay too many whys…

Figuring out too many things consumes too many years;

Fixing one’s gaze on too many ‘too manys’

Creates too many tears & fears…😢

There sure seem to be too many truths, yet

Worth mentioning is the following one:

ONE needs to pray, and do what ONE can

Day after day – ONE step at a time… 🙂
