Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer

Concepts 16

Prone to changes that are positive or negative
Life is a challenge and remain constantly a challenge
Pushed to face situations of tough and troublesome
Bold you become unmindful of the consequence

Strength you may lack to win wait for a chance
Power you may lack to charge wait for your hour
Enemies of your enemy make them your friends
Fulfilled is your desire in tackling undesired situations

Difficult to tell whether a flower is liked
Because of its fragrance or its appearance
Difficult to judge whether a person is liked
Because of the character or the behavior

At times may be dogs are darlings and dear for some
But dogs remain dogs only never bother about their barking
People with loose tongue tend to abuse worse than barking dogs
Inbuilt culture prompt them so whatever attire they may wear

Measured easily are depth of the oceans
Measured easily are distances of planets
Measured easily are the ages of mountains
Measured never can be the depth of thoughts

Race separates humans and animals
Breed separates races among and apart
Creed separates humans apart
Greed separates humans and God

    Yes, Life is a challenge and we find ourselves all alone, though there may be friends..But when we win the hurdles, feel like crown of success is worn especially won with grace and thereby making enemies a friends..
    Thoughts cannot be measured, thoughts makes a man.....Beautifully portrayed. Loved reading it twice. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
