Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Be Known

Be known not by good family
But by deeds and nobility
That shall carry you very far
In the hearts of people as shining star

You might have been celebrated
At the time of birth and felicitated
For filling the void in rich circle
And taken as good omen on arrival

Your hands were wide open
You brought nothing with you but cried all of sudden
To remind family members about your entry
With the blessings and grace from almighty

Legend says “no one carries permanent name”
Work in such a way that there won’t be any blame
People will praise your nobility and good work
There will be honest rating for your words too

Such kind of people prove their worthiness
People may praise right on the face
Their name will be spread all over
That is how person should thrive forever

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
