Poet’s Nook: ” “Bani Adam (Children of Adam)” by Saadi Shirazi

Image result for hindu muslim christian jew buddhist

The sons of Adam are limbs of each other,

Having been created of one essence.

When the calamity of time affects one limb

The other limbs cannot remain at rest.

If you have no sympathy for the troubles of others,

You are unworthy to be called by the name of a Human.


(I was inspired to look this poem up from Coldplay’s latest release, “Everyday Life” which features this inspirational poem & provides the foundation for this beautiful album~~peace, fellow travelers)
