A WAITING TO UNLEASH!


Too much grief due to communal conditions,
Too much anger due to nonsensical notions,
Too much rigid restrictions due to obligations
Make one a poet at last to pour emotion in poems!

At such a time and mood can there be any form
Being followed according to regular poetic models
Usually known to all including both poets and critics
Who can comment and criticize according to fashion?

Grief and anger find whatever weapons available
To hit at the opponents according to their maturity
To establish fair points of view for stirring emotion
To make justice, truth and reason stand above all!

On such occasions words flow in cascades at will
From the depths of the poet’s heart that are hidden
And saturated for a long time inspired, ruminative
And contemplative in nature waiting to unleash!

    Nice way to say why is a Poet born. Poetry is truly the way out for unleashing deep anguish and emotions.Unfortunately every one is not blessed to express what they feel.Yet, fortunate enough that readers also get their voice spoken out aloud as they read poems and especially when they can relate themselves with a piece of work.As such, poetry performs the very noble duty of releiving mental agony. Also kind of poems provides the soothingness in readers mind and heart as they fare from mind to mind.How can someone say I'm lonely after being here.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful thoughts.Regards.

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.
