ramesh rai

(13.12.1955 / howrah)

24 hrs. of life


24 hours is given to me
to fulfill my all commitments
not even a single second
can be added or minimized

24 hrs. of my life
is the rational factors of my life
to achieve the goal of my life
within 24 hrs. of my life

I have to complete the journey
from moon to sun
I have to laugh and cry
love and be annoyed

24 hours of my life
is more precious than
century of my life.

    So beautifully said Ramesh. If we cannot achieve our goals and dreams in life,
    within 24 hours, what good is a century of doing nothing, adding to our lives?
    Every moment in life is a precious petal of being. Another great idea, Ramesh.
    Thank you for the seasoning of reason you place in my mind through your poetry. (Report) Reply

    Ramesh Rai I admire your intellect, a well written poem, indeed all we have is 24 hours if we don't make them work as you rightly say from moon to sun, we lost them. (Report) Reply

But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
