Oh my Fellow Man

Oh my Fellow Man

You are a man of my mirror image
With you I feel high in courage
Your experiences are the source of my knowledge
Let this bond of love never get damaged

We are the humans on this earth
Sharing the air of our breath
Companions to each other until our death
"We are one " that's an undeniable truth

Our smiles vary by name
Tears of pain are all the same
Differing in faces, spaces and races
But belonging to the tribe of superior species

Hear me lot, betray me not
In every mode I need your support
Lonely life is far from happiness net
Joy is then, when our hearts meet

Staying close, fearful egos keeping us apart
Emotions devoid of love aren't good for heart
Love is in our biology, an inborn art
Together we make the fabric of society great

We are the guests of honor on this earth
Sowing seeds of kindness on our daily path
Illusion of 'I'ness is just a myth
Wellness of 'We'ness is the precious wealth

You are the glorious gift of nature
A fellow man to keep me away from being a loner
While in extreme need you are my blood and organ donor
'O man' I salute you with all honor.
