The Human Diary

a poem by

Abha Gupta

I walked this earth for a million years
I grew to learn to kill love and hope; what makes man a man

The next I learnt to kill my heart;
people would laugh at me

I spent half my life yearning for more:
the other half crying over what I have.

The rest will be trying to be with people;
and the last to die dissatisfied.
