Who We Are


Of dust and water
This creation is
Who we are
Nothing but dust
Wet with water
It takes shape..
In a fire of love
It is baked
Some become glorious
Pellucid a few may look
And some
Turn to ash
Scattered in the air
Aimlessly
Who we are
The glorious
Or the pellucid one
Or just ash in the air
Who we are!!

The conundrum of
Beginning and end
Is creating chaos within the soul
One step can lead
Towards utmost decimation
And another move
Can bring ultimate
Manifestation closer
When the whims
Coalesce into thoughts
And desires into objectives
We get closer to the destination
Which left us
Into the trance of
Nothingness
Who we are..
The creation of dust and water
In a quest of
Coalesces into nothingness
Just nothingness!

    1. Dear Saba,

      Well done! I concur with Kaushal Kishore (KK) about your poem entitled “Who We Are”, and I particularly like the following lines:

      When the whims
      Coalesce into thoughts
      And desires into objectives
      We get closer to the destination
      Which left us
      Into the trance of
      Nothingness

      I hereby would like to resonate with these lines musically with my composition entitled “Trance”:

      Yours sincerely,
      SoundEagle

  1. Nicely said in poetry. In reality the human race can be the worst of all creations – this animal (man) kills for power, greed, rage, personal glory . . . while most of the animals (non-human) kill for survival.

  2. What a beautiful piece, dear Saba! I missed reading your wonderful work!! I love the authenticity here and the rhythm which you created, truly a gift to read 🤍🤗
