Vishnu Sampoorn

(28-Jul-1978 / Kolkata)

16 Lines On Life


Life is a tale of 16 lines
of kings, queens, lords and wives,

Whose name and fame, far and wide
everyone wanting to live such lives

With glory, happiness, fun and pleasure
goodness steeped, in full measure,

No pains to weep, no woes to cry
riches to keep and magnify;
They too must be crying alone
when they leave their majestic throne

Worried by woes of subjects their,
apart from problems of their own

So,
Don't think it is best to be rich
or that Life is money's game

Everyone has his joys and sorrow
That's what gives Life its name

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
