An Unheard Voice


Deep down in the abyss of life lies
A voice which is seldom heard;
To soar beyond bondage, it always tries
Far from being a captured bird.

Secluded from the thrills of meaning
We rarely give this voice a chance,
The walls of wisdom on which we are leaning
We rarely give our longings-a glance.

We trod through the runaway of life in haste
Leaving aside the baggage of our belongings,
A delicious unknown experience we taste
When we later come and visit this longings.

In the spring of yesteryears we find
The bliss of company, the sorrow of isolation
The voice in our hearts always reminds
What lies ahead in our unattained destination.

The voice is like an ocean with its waves
Near its shore- we loom, we remain;
Before stumbling our foot into our graves
Let’s hear our voices to escape disdain..

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
