Treasure Island

Vishal Sharma

(10th july 1996/Samastipur (Bihar) / India)

A monkey of my apple tree


we are just familiar with our great ancestors
who taught us a way to lead this beautiful life
and we are ultimately losing their faith
are we leading the life the way they imagined
they were innocent, they were pious in nature
they really taught us the reasons for our survival,
and the way we mislead them, is this a fair cheating,
yeah, surely it is, as we are not proving to be humans
and the hate virus inside us has made us a virus too
these are my captured thoughts i feel it free
whenever i look at the monkey of my apple tree.

    Every generation repeats the same Past is Past, a glorious one we are losing the glory of the world for our own benefits....Echo Friendly..we see AC is not, Vehicle is not still we see we are lost the love and indulged in lust, lust of all kind (Report) Reply

    Soul searching for truth and goodness and to stamp out the awful decay that is hate!
    Hate breeds misery and evil to destroy ourselves in the end!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
