Human Needs
By:  Dr. Maqsood Jafri

*  All we need is bread and butter; a house to live in.
We need our kids to decorate them with wisdom.
We need to protect from the Sun our creamy skin.
We do not want these human necessities at random.

* We have to stand strong in the face of travesties.
With prayers we need the strength and skill of mind.
We can not bank on hollow whims and absurdities.
In the bottom of the sea the pearl  we have to find.

*I have to respond to the call of all wretched souls.
The poor and the downtrodden wait for my reply.
I am neither a king nor a fascist who deny pools.
For the life of the oppressed ones happily I can die.

* We are humans; our needs are all natural needs.
We want to be loved and we need to be esteemed.
Do not imprison us in the dungeons of dirty deeds.
Dry bread we demand ;not the toasts creamed.
