Treasure Island

Mailrangam Visvanathan Venkataraman

(28/08/1959 / Trichy, India)

Birth On This Earth


That soul which believes with a hopeful heart
That God will do the needed adjustment
Will in hope-art become an enviable expert
Under this wonderful blue firmament

Happiness lies in the art of forgetting
All those injuries which others inflict
Forgiving is the best remedy for getting
A solution for any kind of conflict

Solving problems may be difficult
But a shrewd mind never foolishly bothers
Though the urgency to solve is strongly felt,
Such great minds are for achievements fathers

Living on this Earth is a great boon
This fact if every soul realizes
Then will give pleasure the playing Moon
And also the Sun when it daily rises

Merge patience and hard-work into one
To overcome any kind of hardship
In this way Sky and Ocean were won
By the inventions called plane and ship

Man is God-made, but God is not man-made
God is associated with all the creatures
His watchful eyes nothing can evade
All creatures are in a way preachers and teachers

A wise being will be wisely saying
“O God, forgive me and my drawbacks
I know prayer is worth-doing
Though money comes not in crores and lacs”

The proverb “survival of the fittest”
Is simply the rule of the jungle
It is God who is always the greatest
So view everything from a Divine angle

All are God’s dearest children
His generous eyes never discriminate
It is men whose hearts are barren
It is in their minds evils originate

Please build life-boat by love-wood
Love is the one and only language
Which by all is easily understood
Including by those animals in the cage.

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,
