Empty Of Humanity

by Ehsan Sehgal

Who takes care for whom
In most of the hearts
Reside the greed
The crafty
The capricious
The cruelty
The dishonesty
Everyone kills
The compassion
The feeling
The emotion
Heart and mind
Of those
Who devote
Their love and life
To cure wounds
Heart and soul
Of sad and hopeless
People under suppressed
I often ask myself
How and why
We entitle
To be a human
Even we are empty
Of the humanity.
