a poem by Teesha Guliana

How are we humans so unique,
Yet so weird?
We keep chasing our ambitions,
But chase away our fears?

Shouldn’t we stand up,
Stand up against our enemies?
Should we not stop chasing things,
Which are beyond our reach?

Why can we not,
Relish the simple favours of life?
Leave our taste buds messed up,
With the ‘worth-it’ flavours of life?

Why do we fret,
From the simple things which give us happiness?
Why do we bend down,
Towards things which cause our sufferings?

Why do we play with emotions,
Of our own and other peoples’?
Why does humanity,
Have to bear the brunt of other people’s actions?
