Be Human

M. Ashaq Raza – TRANSCEND Media Service

Sip by sip
Drop by drop
Drink we life’s wine
The world looks so fine
Some say it is mine
Some say it is mine
It belongs to but none
Except the God’s reign
Why then
This quarrel and fight
Why this ‘might is right’
Why this caste and creed
Why this egoism and greed
Why not simply a human
May an Indian or a Roman
Yes, be human
