Best Poem of kelvin karani

I Am A Future Leader

From the outset I must state
Old men (especially these!) and (some) women
Are not in me to hate
And thunderstorm I pray them not to strike
Because that is where I am headed
You all know and can certainly see
The truth, so by Amadiora may I not be beheaded

Most if not at all all offices around
Have sleepy octogenarians sleeping on the job
Waking up to remind me that my turn will come round
In the future, not near, not far- somewhere there

I am future leader you see
And so was my father before me
Who in that moment of despondency

Read the full of I Am A Future Leader

Forgive Me Mother

I was born a hard worker
Toiling to get everything better
Crying whenever it got tough
Shedding tears of struggling
Failing at times making them laugh
But never giving up at all
Mother, you never taught me giving up!

But,

[Hata Bildir]
