Hopes, Content, Peace And Frustration - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

Life on earth lives on hopes
Hopes of life glow with peace
Elusive peace punctures the hopes

Evaporated hopes
Shattered dreams
Sported is a smile yet on the face

Favored by none
Hammered by all
Feared is the life day in and out

Behind the smiles
Concealed is the mental trauma
Unnoticed that makes the kill

Sympathy is needed the last
Honor is needed the most
Which remains always distant dream

Frustration comes not by unrealized dreams
All round hurdles causes frustration
Frustrated minds never can compete

Peace comes with content
Content comes with fulfillment
Greed swallows fulfillment

    A fine poem. What Mr.Ratan Tata told of the foreigners outlook on India is a mirror to us for a change.The last stanza is the remedy to check Maoism and terrorism not bullets or jails (Report) Reply
