20th November


It was a pretty long time ago.
How time flies when you're on the go
In front of me, time stood tall
I have no memory of it at all
But i know it's on a day like this
That the Gods in conjugal bliss
Does mould men amongst men
It is the best day of the season.
How can I ever forget this day?
A great day in a special way.
It will always come around,
In front of me, no single sound,
Bright like the sun:
The day i was born,
Twentieth of November
A day to always remember.
When I think of you and what you are
It reminds me of how close we are.
It's between me and you,
I'm blessed because of you,
You lie down in my shadow,
While I create spectacles like a rainbow.
Let there be many break throughs,
Help me, let's shatter this darkness.
Let's light up this night,
Let the light shine bright
Like a million billion volts
And break through the Martian vaults.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
