A Small Line - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

Smiled in my heart
Looking at a line
It looks very small
Many eyes ignore it
It’s a small line

Its length is small
Its width is small
So it looks small
It’s a small line
Its depth is secret

It fills the eyes
It makes us cry
But eyes ignore it
It’s a small line
It has a name

It is your name
It is my name
But we can’t see it
It’s a small line
It is on tombstone

Between those two dates
Which many eyes read
Ignoring a small line
It’s a small line of life
Line of life is very short

So don’t waste it
In hating and hurting
So make it count
With smile and warmth
Leave your mark forever
