Treasure Island

Jahan zaib

(February 05,1981 / Malakand Pakistan)


If verse is the truth,
Does any poet speak it?
If it's the world of fancy,
A fancy of delight,
In life of despair,
Then greater part of people,
Live lives of deception,
They dream but dream a fear,

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have seen so many people living their nights thinking whether they will have something to eat the next day or not. Every body in his or her speech deceive these people. they are the majority, the poor people.

    In this world it seems there are the rich and the poor. Some have plenty while others have nothing. The children I cry for to be fed properly. lovely sad thoughtful poem (Report) Reply

    Poets are the can openers of the world's cans of worms.
    What did you expect
    They just reveal the truth

    this is sa\d to many people in the world wonder if they will
    have something to eat not just tomorrow but today also..
    if God would cause the people who have so much to find
    it in their hearts to share with the people who have not.. (Report) Reply

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
