A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek)

 

If there were only men in the world

How would life be?

Dead

 

If there were only women in the world

How would life be?

Dead

 

If there were only saints in the world

How would life be?

Just dead

 

If there were only devils in the world

How would life be?

Also dead

 

Life is full of opposites

Life is full of fun

 

The good and the bad

The saint and the sinner

The moral and the immoral

The man and the women

Makes life a worthwhile journey

 

The laughter and the tears

The happiness and the sadness

The pleasure and the pain

Makes life a journey of wonder

 

When God made this world

He also made the ‘other’

When God made you

 

He also made me
