Very nice and good poems makes world opinion to change in its best of positive thoughts in human heart. Sometimes it helps as a catalyst for opinion for better world order, peace, democracy, disarmament through world opinion it makes when the poet have such capacities to make public opinion.Creating best poems is a quality which very few of the poets can achieve who have inborn capacities to make very ideal poems and experiences that gained through vast reading. I likes this forum due to its opportunity that give the readers and make themselves a part of discussions without barriers of humanmade walls.
