U for Unanimous

Unanimous in our greed,
Unanimous in our desire,
Unanimous in our wants,
Unanimous in our misty mire,

Why can't we be unanimous
in our dislike for dark terror?
Why can't we be unanimous
in our peaceful perceptions about humanity?

Unanimous in love,
Unanimous in creation,
Unanimous in death,
Unanimous in recreation,

Why can't we be unanimous
in our prayers to the Almighty?
Why can't we be unanimous
in joy and hope?

Are we really unanimous at all?

Unfortunately or fortunately no five fingers are same...in difference there lies a solution and unity

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Yes, Tarun. I suppose so. It is a fact which is hard to accept.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Sylvia K said...

Great post and words for the day -- and so true, fortunately or unfortunately, as Tarun has written.
Thanks for joining us again for ABC!

We share so much; it's a pity s many things divide us!

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Hi Sylvia,

Thanks. And yes, we are constantly divided about so many things. A real pity.

It's my pleasure to write for ABC.

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Hi Brenda,
Yes, definitely. In spite of being born as humans we have so many things dividing us. Or should I say, we induce this kind of division with our thoughts and prejudices.

All I can say is, Amen, sister!

Difficult question, almost rhetorical.
Have a nice day!

Gattina said...

So alone standing anonymous flower, lol !

I am not always unanimous with others !

Wanda said...

To live in a world of unity...would be heaven.... and maybe we have to wait until then to really experience it.

Wonderful Post... I add my Amen!

Excellent Shail. But is very difficult to make people understand this fact. Hope ur poem helps.

Poetry lovers like me are Unanimous in our appreciation of this excellent poem.

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Hi Roger,

Great that you agree too!!

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Yes Vasi,

But important enough to ponder seriously about.

Nice Day!

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Hi Gattina,

Most of us love to disagree. It's normal human trait!

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Hi Wanda,

Yes, living in a world of unity. What a lovely feeling. And yes, we have to wait for long I think too.

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Thanks dear Jingle..

Shail Raghuvanshi said...

Ah Ha! Hari. You make my day with your lovely comments....

Sonal Shree said...

Nice reflections, Shail. Sadly, such one-ness is utopian.I share your feelings.

deepika said...

Lovely poem.Idea of being unanimous is desirable but hardly seen.

Vimala Ramu said...

A thought provoking question worth pondering.

Shailraghuvanshi said...

Hi Sonal. Good to see you here, one of the first persons to comment on my poetry blog when I started this blog.

Shailraghuvanshi said...

Thanks Deepika. Nice to see you here.

Glad you liked the poem. But as you said, being unanimous is seldom seen as desirable, selfish that we are as humans....

Shailraghuvanshi said...

Hi Arindam, Nice to read your comment.

Thanks.

Shailraghuvanshi said...

Hi Vimala.

Thanks for dropping by here. Yes, a question worth pondering and finding an answer......

Sonal Shree said...

Didn't know that. Now the list of people appreciating your poetry has increased by geometric progression. May the tribe increase.

Shailraghuvanshi said...

Thanks Sonal. Tumhaare mooh me ghee shakkar....
