- What Matters
"How arrogant we humans are!
To keep using Her parts to satisfy our greed",
I thought, as I saw the Jaswand.
My fingers moved to touch its petals,
As if in a trance.
The mere anticipation of its softness,
Made my heart flutter.
I was going to be few of the lucky ones
Who this majestic flower would grace.
But hastily, I pulled my hand back!
What grave error I would have done!
We do not deserve the joy the Jaswand would have brought us.
This heavenly flower is reserved only for Ek-dant
Its Creator, and the only one who deserves it
Who unlike us cruel humans,
Will treat this delicate beauty with kindness and honour
So I turned around and saw Her one last time
And with great difficulty, I ran away.
Leaving the flower with my mother
Who I knew would treat her as she deserved
And I prayed I could grow up to be someone
Whom the Nature will not be afraid of,
But willing invite into Her arms.
