Respect is a desideratum

image

O Heart! O Formidable Heart!
For the mankind you are such.
You know the god like powers
to sway the rigids and the fickling
on sides where your purpose lie.

O Heart! The Sadness, She steps by
to meet me in many corners,
Of this world I find.
“Respect is a desideratum.”
Then why? O Heart! O Sadness!
Do men forget this for,
the men on the other side.
-Manvendra Vidyarthi
(The Stories beneath the eyes)
