Good Things And Evil Coexist!


However high skyscrapers rise,
Whatever be the hues of lights,
However well new bridges look,
All things must someday go!

All earthlings born must someday die;
Man’s mind just yearns for moments new;
The modern trends will unearth old;
Landscapes will surely change with times!

Yet, none can say, ‘this is the end! ’
Man loves to procreate new things;
His curiosity is great;
Man pulls off feats, if God allows!

Most things are vanity and pomp;
Most things by man seem futile too;
But God allows him freedom, so,
Let human brains and hearts do more!

Good things and evil coexist;
Changes will come though good or bad;
But Nature trims the saplings new,
So that trees grow with fruits better.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
