Treasure Island

Pushkar Bisht

How much more do we need?

How much more do we need?
Are the things not sufficient we own?
Crushing all the human's values
in building our big progress.

How much more do we need?
When three basic things are required,
Bread, cloth & shelter
It seems how greedy we have become.

How much more do we need?
Possessing a lot of belongings,
How many buildings will we get built?
by crushing so many innocent lives.

How much more do we need?
Having a precious life to lead,
Why do we make this life so critical?
haven't we lost our conscience fully.

How much more do we need?
Aren't our children's lives more precious,
Gambling with our young children
Being not aware of what teachings we can give them.

How much more do we need?
When we know, all glittering things are not gold,
But for money we strip our clothes
How low we have fallen in our own eyes.

How much more do we need?
How much knowledge do we need?
When knowledge does not do any good
So why to have such knowledge.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
