Prove Yourself

Ehsan Sehgal

Feel the pain of others
Be the first
To share their pain
To do what they need
To ease their pain
To lighten their life
Use your resources
As your approach
To live
Just for your living
Animals do that too,
Prove yourself
You are a human
With the vision
Love and devotion
Win the heart and mind
Of all people
Be fair, do justice
Before you stand
To Almighty God
To answer
For all your deeds.
