Rekha Mandagere

Amoeba Messages

Once man was gifted with great time and mind
To feel for fellowman’s joys, miseries with no foul
Those were the glorious moments only to find
Life in full, spirits in zeal and relationships in soul
Full of glories, victories and flair for Hanuman tales

This Digital age man found busy every moment
Slave of comforts, hurried life, passes heartless comment
Dressed Half, fed half and giving others half a smile
Sour at heart but sweet tongued talk spreads a mile
No great deals, witnessing an age of Amoeba messages!

    Beautiful poem indicating the degrading moral values in the society. The rise of cosumerism has pushed back the old values of the society.
    Today's man is running after wealth and luxuries. He has forgotten his aim why he is sent in this world.
    I like the way you have composed the whole poem.
    Very poignant write indeed.
    Thanks for sharing.....

    This is so true. Time is such a constant message of speed and a servant of capitalism, I thank God I am not a materialist and my only concern is for a time to dream and create poetry. Thank you for this lovey write.

    I so agree with you on this poem. We are truly always in a rush it seems. This is a beautifully written poem Rekha! I'm definitely giving it a 10! Thanks for sharing such fine work! Keep it coming. (Report) Reply

    Great poem Rekha! I wish we could all put the brakes on the speed with which we do everything and learn from the lessons of our ancestors. (Report) Reply

    Is there anyone not to agree that man tries too hard to catch up with the speed we've got? Meanwhile loosing the essence of life? As time goes fast we have no chance to make memories and then after we've gone, the dear ones can only praise our bones.. Yes we need big changes, we need to stop, take time to look around and ask ourself: what's more important? Keeping up with speedy times or try let out the treasure of the heart? Love, with great love that's how we shall treat everything even the time! If time is loved may slow down and keep around, that is my hope..
    10.Thank you for share, good written poem, my dear friend! (Report) Reply

    True; abosolutely true. Man has no time, nowadays, for good thing in life. Plastic smiles in miles and hypocrism has vanished the goodness and what all remains a pales shadow of his former self. Narayanan. (Report) Reply

    This is a very nice poem. I think it has a very clear message that contains lots of wisdom. Somehow, I can feel the power and postive motion of a certain kindness movement. I think that the world is slowly getting better. Poems like this can certainly contribute to the kindness revolution (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
