Treasure Island

Akash Tripathi


Blues


Pouring the destiny with endevour
I will stand in the storm forever
Once a man asked'give up'
i roared 'never'

Want to bleed like the blues
Emerzing over horizon with every move
Stand up, move ahead, light is waiting
shed the dark, bring the blues with greeting

Alas! here comes the devil of dark
eating all hopes and goodwill
leaving only remorse and scars
losing vitality, lustre and will
i see the blues
but these are now dark
i stood, i roared, i moved
to defeat the dark and bring the blues
although i am defeated today
but i will win one day
because i have been told
'you are a warrior, you will hit the gold'

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
