Close Your Ethics of Ego and Proud


Close your ethics of ego and proud
And read the lasting sign of time.

A drop I am and ocean's quite expanse are you
I know though well each and every ups and downs you go,
And I know well the secret of shine
Of Illusion's glorious crown you wear.

So many pages of requests are pending
But you haven't time beyond self tending.
Still there's world beyond those lines
To the which you cling circling every time.

Life is not just self expression
It's also and easy and smooth conversation.

The self-pleasing smile that floats and blossoms upon your bosom
Hides within its depth a vicious poison.

Though you bloom in hearts like a flower of honour
But be gentle and not wild to shake off that flower.

Why 'tis dilemma of self realising
Though you be complete but others have also livings.

Yet 'tis yours self perception, rest others' quite rejection
So be ready for self-shame end to welcome your chariot
Returning from defeated vision.

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;
