Human Errors

Posted on 2 Comments

This was a short poem I wrote when I was in 11th standard (+1 class) in school, that got published in a reputed English daily The Tribune‘s weekly supplement “Windows”.

In spite of the fact that we are humans,
The most superior and intelligent of all creatures.
We make absurd mistakes,
Which are nothing else but
Hatred, disregard and contempt
Shown towards our mates.
Sometimes we are in a dilemma,
To do or not to do,
To accept or to contradict.
But who can predict,
The happenings that will be.
Someday, due to the foolish deeds of some bloke,
There will be suffering all around.
And for this, only humans will carry the blame,
Because they would be the only one
Who played the game.

  1. WOW! This is a beautiful.
    Now I am really proud to have you as a friend. :’)
    This is what i am talking about. Where were you hiding this.

  2. Glad to know you liked it. 🙂

    I wrote it, like, 7 years ago. And just recently it occurred to me to dig it out from the archives and share it on the blog.
