Treasure Island

Kavya ...


Fate


Friends, I’m a person like you
Who has but enjoyment very few
Who do exist on this earth
But unable to lead a normal life since birth.

I can’t see the Nature around
Or the tall buildings that surround
Like you I can’t enjoy the rain**
Nor the sight of beautiful lane.

I was born in darkness
And I do live in darkness
Dark nights alone surround me
I see everywhere dark around me.

Yes, my dear friend I’m blind
Who has full of darkness ahead
But happy am I with this fate
As like you am not a victim of love and hate! **

Dear Readers,
I hope I have been able to justify the feelers of a blind person in a subtle way and not make the readers difficult to interpret the hidden meanings in this poem.

Thanks to all of you who have read my poem and given in their valuable inputs.

    Very beautiful message Kavya. Blind people lives are miserable as they cannot enjoy the beautiful nature. Loved the way you presented it. (Report) Reply

    People who are born blind donot know how others see and feel. So they don't have great regrets! But for a person who becomes blind sometime later in life after being in light, it will be so miserable! When we see such people we are reminded how lucky, we are to have been born without any deformities! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

    i'll be more impressed if i knew for sure the author is blind. i liked the rhymes. i rarely would rhyme one word with the very same word....darkness/darkness.....but here i think it serves to emphasis the darkness.
    what do you think about changing the next two lines...just a little bit.

    Dark nights alone surround me
    I see everywhere dark around. might i suggest putting me after around?

    i have some other comments which i will send in a message. thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply

    A poem that expresses the duality of a vision not aspired and a notion arising out of it.
    If the narrator is happy about his/her state, the title of the poem has to be changed as 'destiny'.
    A good write Kavya.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
