Jyoti Sunit Chaudhary

Rookie (30th December 1978 / Madhubani, Bihar, India)

He wants to Retreat (Quatrain)


Ardent passion of going high,
Desire to touch the illusion of sky,
Tempted to earn fame and name,
Restless effort to reach the aim,

All led to a point of commitment
To earn wealth to uttermost extent,
Where, each success enhances thirst.
Thirst of advancement is the worst,

When one forgets to celebrate success,
Out of fear to miss the next chances,
Ignoring surroundings and overtaking all,
Though, he achieves his goal after all,

He is in discontentment and melancholy,
Despite his dreams fulfilled, he is wealthy.
He finds himself in a darkness of agitation,
The rivalry of growth and competition.

Within the roar of glory of success,
Receiving compliments and praises,
His peace-less surroundings remind,
His true happiness is left behind.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
