“Degradation of Humanity”
—–Dr. Bodrul Alam Sohag
All around, there is nothing but humanity
In the nation or society,
Then why a lost soul weeps bitterly
Into the tune of the bugle ?
Humanity awakens life like a fountain of laughter
Among the best creatures in creation,
if there is even the slightest disturbance of interest among them
it is humanity that
Fills the mind with twilight.
It is only that who gives love, cradle and compassion
sometimes in a genuine way,
At the end of the day when night falls,
The changes come in the nature of the character.
killing with an attitude of violence, being ruthless
to cause unnecessary harm,
The lustful mind of the impure mind is consumed in vain
Helpless rapes the woman.
Looking at the distance, heard the groaning voice of the helpless and suffering people
How they are humiliated
How humanity decays,
equality and humanity are defeated by Demonicity incessantly
How there is the degradation of humanity?
Do you see? Have ever felt?
