Poem for the Day

Aliazer Abdurajim

Only in this world
We are divided into races
Have diversed colors and faces
Born to different traditions and cultures
Living on various principles and faiths

Only in this world
We choose leaders to lead
Hire servants to serve
Marry a woman more than to soothe
And find allies to protect

Only in this world
Democracy is valuable
Freedom anywhere shouted
Gold is worthier than ties
Nobility regarded as an advantage

Only in this world
To seek knowledge is obligation
To search the reality as a vision
To sow seeds of belief as vocation
To worship the Almighty as a mission

Only in this world
Everything is transient...and bewares!
We will be too unseen.
