Act of Goodness


Riches of being good
All if try can relish
Sweetness of life
are gathered in battlefield
To die a happy death one day
A hidden way to grave in mind
Declare the eternal will you say
To become the lover of mankind
This array of intriguing questions
has no meaning in answering them
They say their death is in question
show sanity in connecting them
When queries fly around a corpse
All replies get surrounded
Help us live long after our death
They will no longer survive on earth
Why do they care what people think about?

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
