Seeds of Hope…

A Ray of Hope

By Zubair Nazeer

Can you sow the seeds of hope?

This garden is so fertile yet barren

Can you fetch a drop of water?

This ocean is so deep yet dry

Can you share a loaf of bread?

This country is so resourceful yet poor

Can you spread a word of wisdom?

This society is so educated yet illiterate

Can you teach how to be humble?

This man is so empty yet arrogant.

Can you show a door of humanity?

This world is so full of humans yet inhuman

Life is not as hopeless as it looks.

Can you sow the seeds of hope?
