Humans are beyond reach

Flow of emotions has started
It is the rise of thoughts
Who is teaching whom?
Head to heart
Or heart to head?

Who is the student in my phase?
Who learns from whom?
Heart obeys the head
Or head as student looks.

Knowledge arises from where?
What is the route of travel?
When emotions hurt the body?
What documents does brain develops?

Doesn’t brain support with logic?
The weak emotional body fold.
Is there no where strength?
Is heart in need of lesson to enfold?

Is brain a cruel being without heart?
And heart weak without brain?
When brain is used by a politician?
Is the heart dead?

When a missionary steps in to serve
Forgetting all differences in place
What does his brain says?
Does it never makes a complain?

When people grow trees
What is the goal in mind?
Tragedy of earth doesn’t serve peace
Who feels what from this story told?

When an activist stand in dark dust
Feeling the pain of life and nature alike
Who listens to his furious words?
Is it when the earth is asleep?

Who listens to the researcher?
When the goal of money for all is set
Who cares for climate change?
When political heart is head.

Who nurtures strength?
Who obeys pain?
No one enrols the simple
Our world is a political flow.

When a child cries tears
And unethical moves free
When tragedy hurts the heart
Why doesn’t political head feel?

Why as a poetess I am unheard?
Did I never speak?
Master what art new?
With world politics I am too upset.

When will rhyme meet logic?
When will there by peace?
Infinite of riches has made us poor
Are we humans beyond reach?
