In December 31,2019 wrote a beautiful poem with a thought in mind that when someone whom we love is no more, or death of our loved ones, or when the health fails or when life only offers you the failures, then the charm of world doesn’t impact you anymore, nothing seems magical, powerful nor impactful to you, in its ‘basic version’ namely
"We slept in one world and woke upto another.
Suddenly Disney has no more magic, Paris is no longer romantic, and in New York everyone sleeps and the Chinese wall isnt a fortress anymore.
Suddenly hands shake is now shaking hands,
Suddenly hugs and kisses become weapons and not visiting parents and grandparents become an act of love.
Suddenly we realised that power is not that valuable and money is not that powerful”
And then later on, in March 25, 2020 he wrote more versions of it in Its extended forms keeping the present times in mind by giving tribute to mother earth, one among them is namely the earth poem
"We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.
Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn’t stand up anymore,
The Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.
Hugs & kisses suddenly become weapons, and not visiting parents & friends becomes an act of love.
Suddenly you realize that power, beauty & money are worthless, and can't get you the oxygen you're fighting for.
The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it's sending us a message:
"You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters.”
And the other versions can be viewed on his instagram : @authorharoonrashid
All the versions of his writings got viral across the globe.
Originally written in English. Now these writings have been translated in every possible language on earth including Chinese, Italian, Persian, Spanish, Arabic, African, Mexican, Russian, French, German, Indonesian, Urdu, Hindi, Sanskrit, Nepali, Kannada and so on.
Initially when it was going viral, some readers took off his name and posted without it, so to few readers it received as author unknown or source not known. It’s social media some people copy paste the work but not the writer, it happens with lot of quotes or poems with even great writers like Rumi, Aristotle, Shakespeare and so on.
Readers are very very wise to know that who can write what by just reading their writings.
And another wisest thing is truth shows up and lies blow out loud.
Perhaps as it was going as author unknown, some fake persons started writing their name under it. Few International celebrities tried to make it under their name, perhaps fans of Author Haroon Rashid confronted them and those celebrities had to apologize while removing the post.
While Every person on earth searched for who the writer is,
and many got to know as well and they connected to him on his social sites including Instagram @authorharoonrashid and Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/working4HR
Almost every person including celebrities world over shared his poem from their official accounts, giving due credit to him and also this poem is used by celebrities world over campaigning for donations for Covid Relief.
And those who haven’t yet, they should also step up. After all good work and good creator should be acknowledged simultaneously in order to have more such beautiful write ups and creations.
As this poem asked all the readers to care for earth, now the writer itself is asking all the readers to stand with and for the truth and speak the language of peace.
“Stand up with the truth, else crawl with lies all through the life.”
To all the souls out there, here and everywhere who loved and shared it, I thank you from my soul.
Stay blessed and beautiful
Best Wishes Always Rock
