Treasure Island

Dr Hitesh Sheth

(Birth Place: Earth)

Audacity to Hope

When the recession of opportunities
Knock downs, towns and cities;
When the flood of tension
Hits alike, huts and mansions;
When anxiety tortures life's moments
And men wallows in teary torments;
When life is anything but easy
And only head shrinkers seems busy

Then, oh! Men
It is time to stand still
As ancient hills
of indomitable will
Which braves
Fiery storms
And wintry chills:

And your audacious hope
Should strive to climb
steep recession's slope,
tightly holding
divine grace's rope

Till in boom
The flood of recession wanes
Clouds of opportunities rains
And mad lives again becomes sane.

Dr Hitesh C Sheth

    Hello sir,

    'When anxiety tortures life’s moments
    And men wallows in teary torments;
    When life is anything but easy
    And only head shrinkers seems busy'

    I should say when this kinda thing happens, turn to Dr Hitesh Sith, cause he will always heal you with his poetic therapies

    'And your audacious hope
    Should strive to climb
    steep recession’s slope,
    tightly holding
    divine grace’s rope'

    I like these expressions too.... Lot to think here, ..
    I think you'v expressed yourself in a very poetic and creative manner..
    A psychologist can always gives you treatments, but not many can do it in such a innovative way I think..
    Great talent indeed

    Splendid write...

    with loves

    And such is the boom and bust spell that we live under! Very nicely put - I like the cynical hit at the end - yes it's all insane.

    A good protrayal of our boom and bust world. Unfortunately its the people who live in huts who suffer the most and..... also make less noise. 10 (Report) Reply

    this recession is not fully true...since the boom or the bullish trend before was'nt also fully true...the common people had fallen a pray to the boom which snayched their money to fill someone's booty...genuinity is what will pullus out (Report) Reply

    Dr., you are right. Recession subdues audacious hope and revokes love for the Lord. Good poetry.

It little profits that an idle king,

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
