a man's desire in life


each and everyone has some desire
these desires are endless.

the desire of love-power,
raised him high, very high.

the desire of indifference-power
ragged him down
beyond his imagination.

the desire of thought-power
killed his inner silence.

the desire of money-power
fooled him, his life, his all.

the desire of education-power
made him the best

that's why a man's desire in life
made him to see the world beyond.

    hello,
    man's desire are always endless. he wants this or that every time. so its better to help a man who needs a small thing which you have alot. in this way some of the desires of man can be fulfilled.

    I made a small mistake
    to forget her after 10 years
    desires still lingers beyond her foot
    when she smiled me kept scilent
    when she laughed me put mask
    when she admired me roared barring the limit
    now after a long period
    she disguise in my every walk
    no, nothing powered me
    but no desire ruled me (Report) Reply

    Hi. I believe the one who knows best becomes silent. Shallow water makes more noise. So thought power won't break the silence. I think it's a good poem. I like the powers that you mentioned and I like the last stanza the most. I'd be glad if you comment on my poems too. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    he desire of indifference-power
    ragged him down
    beyond his imagination.
    very narrow road we ride to power fails to gain (Report) Reply

    a true pic of the soul mind in words
    he desire of indifference-power
    ragged him down
    beyond his imagination. (Report) Reply

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
