Rekha Mandagere


Burn, burn!


Burn, burn the evil in you
Not someone else's mind!
Burn, burn your loveless thoughts
Not someone else's desires!
Burn, burn the inevitability of your living
Not someone else's life!
Burn, burn, burn your jealousy
Not someone else's conscience!
Burn, burn your evil wants
Not someone else's smiles
Burn, burn, burn your vanity
Not someone else's dumb helplessness!
Burn, burn, burn you sinner
Your futile prattle
Not someone's tears!
Burn, burn, burn your remorseless life
Not someone else's existence!

    Great poem dearest Rekha! Good lesson, yes! Smile and accept the others as they are. Rather fight self if the harmony, own negative instinct would try control over to take. Love and peace, Elena (Report) Reply

    really I wish to burn my mind for God to keep and to find a godly land for me - try to move
    Burn, burn your evil wants
    Not someone else's smiles

    Nice sense of energy in this piece and repetition reinforces the point of the poem. The pacing works well to almost mimic the intensity of the flames before they diminish. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
