Can Never Be Failure

Poet can never be failure
Take it granted or for sure
It is imagination in proper prospective
Real concern for others and subjective

It may take years to find recognition
With readers and outside world with inhibitions
Readers are like god to know where actually has gone wrong
No one can expect it to be accepted just like song

What after all we are projecting?
Not all ideas of mind deliberately injecting
It is up to readers to accept or reject
We are only instrumental in putting before them only fact

I came across story which is worth honoring
The poor taxi driver in Singapore did work worth mentioning
He returned purse full of money which was left behind
He could take it away for life's pleasure to find

One more story is about old man's might
Against might of lion to save the life with tough fight
90 years of age and he offered brave resistance
The life was saved with death and survival chance

Sometimes only such incidences appeal
As they speak of valor and reflect as real
What for have we to go to them and deal?
Nothing but to share the views as well

We are sentimental and need some one to share
Some kind of brake to apply when does no fare
Some kind of restriction coming from well known quarter
Leading to some kind of sadness and sometimes roaring in laughter

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
