Treasure Island

Areena Arora

Dream


A dream I had
was weird, was bad
was very sad.
I saw the world
all set on fire
to fulfill all small desires
the world was set on a fire.
Everyone on a race
to begin a chase.
To fulfill small little desires
the world was set on fire.
The hunger to success
had made many depressed.
All on a chase
many obstacles had to be faced
throughout the race.
In the dream I saw
all hearts were raw
without any sentiments
life with no contents.
I saw the world set on fire
to fulfill little desires.
The dream horrified me
It woke me up an made me to freeze.
It made me open my eyes
and I realized.
The world out of dreams is also on fire
as people don't deserve what they desire
and yet they do desire........

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;
