Poem - Insan aur Main

Humanity and Me

I’ve tried my utmost to understand humanity

But I’ve been disappointed again and again;

When I came close to an insight,

It revealed its colors in a new light,

And I saw I was as baffled as ever.

But finally I thought, why not abandon this endeavor,

And do my best to understand myself?

Perhaps that might lead me, at last,

To better understand humankind.
