Human

When shall we learn to know
People around us?
Not by their name
But as ‘human' same.
When shall we learn to love
People around us?
Not by their caste
But as ‘human' cast.
When shall we learn to see
People around us?
Not by their colors
But as ‘human brothers'.
When shall we learn to deal
People around us?
Not with their race
But embrace all with grace.
Because,
Differ may the name
Like earring, ring or chain
But we must remember, ‘the gold' is same.

We must remember,
‘The five elements' are the same.

Men are essentially the same with almost similar cravings, interests and traits! We may be known by different names, we may have different religious practices, we may be citizens of different countries and climes. But these differences should not pose as barriers in loving or accepting others as we are all human and are born as children of God! A great message of universal brotherhood! A 10

Because, Differ may the name Like earring, ring or chain But we must remember, ‘the gold' is same. Marvelous expression! ! ! These lines are truly captivating. You have captured my heart in these lines. We must remember that whoever we are, in the eyes of God we are all equal. Stay blessed dear poet Devanshu.
Differ may the name Like earring, ring or chain But we must remember, ‘the gold' is same. What beautiful words! You have brought out Upanishadic truth in these three lines. that the soul is the same in all life. The beauty of this poem lies in its simplicity also apart from its profound truth.
