Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla


'So be it' you say
And live unto yourself

Should you leave
The treasure chest of experience
Locked and sealed
Never to open?

You keep saying
To yourself
He will be successful
If he does this
She will benefit
By doing that
Is that enough?
Why not tell them?

Why stay with
All kinds of stray thoughts
Disturbing the idle mind
Day in and day out?
Why not open up
Share your ideas…
It will lead you
To a new level of contentment
And a happy level of fulfillment
Don't you agree?

    This is a very good write. Why keep your ideas and suggestions to
    yourself. Someone else may benefit from them if you would open
    up to them. Maybe there will be a world of possibilities that may
    surface with expressing yourself to others. A good read. (Report) Reply

    A nice message indeed. Most times we tend to say ourselves without expressing it to the concerned. expressed neatly. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
