Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

A place anywhere

Finally you got to settle somewhere
Yu have no place to go anywhere
One can think of resting there
It is wonderful place with no fears

Whatever may be your deeds?
Whatever may be your greed?
You may have no worry to feed
You are taken away and freed

People wish heaven for you
I don’t know how far it is true?
Why do we pray for peace in heaven?
He has done nothing at all good even

We touch the feet and seek the blessings
There is something moral like missing
We were all the time at loggerheads
He used to be dreaded and we were afraid

It is not satisfaction at al for his departure
We don’t heave a sigh of relief for future
He could do worst all in his tenure
We feared so much and were unsure

We still lay a wreath
That is last respect to death
You may be buried deep in the ground
The final peace is lastly found

It is burial ground
Complete peace and absolutely no sound
No one goes there for any round
Occasional offerings and flowers to be found

No one may wish to come here
Still it has to somewhere near
The journey may soon be taken
Even if your belief is shaken

It has to be borne in mind
You got to and will have to find
The journey may end soon
You will be brought here in night or noon

Wish all a happy good bye
You have now nothing left to buy
You may not see them in times to come
You place is fixed with rousing welcome

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
