Face Of Earth!

Notice them when they are sleeping
Curtains drawn on the stage of sight
Worries drowned in the realm of mind
And vocals resting in the cave of quiet

Notice them when they are awake
Limbs moving on the body of world
Worries piling on the desk of brain
And words thrown with every move

Notice them when they are praying
Eyes lifted towards the roof of earth
Thoughts bathing in divine rain
And lips moving with gentle pain

Notice them when they are sinning
Features vanishing from the sheet of face
Thoughts struck by blind lightening
And tongue shouting without reason

Notice people on the face of earth
Playing the game of life
Tensed by its higher levels
Still fighting and hoping to strive.
