Treasure Island

dr. ram sharma

(30 years / meerut)


I am thinking,
How this 20th century,
Will be presented,
In history after 100 years,
That this was the century,
Of brutal murders and massacares,
In this century,
The apostles of peace
Were silenced by bullets,
This was the century,
Two world wars were fought,
In this century,
Men progressed very much,
But towards his destruction

    We can look on the violent side it but it also gave us great advances in medicine,
    science to give comfort to our lives, and inspite of weapons of mass distruction, the wars, I feel more compassion than we ever had before. (Report) Reply

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
