Treasure Island

Umasree Raghunath

(24 September 1976 / Eluru, AndhraPradesh, India)

I


Swashbuckling ‘I’ of human mind and pride
Garnishing arrogance of compulsions bid
Exaggerated self proclamation put to use
Nothing but feeble self brilliantly obtuse

Where to leap with thoughts of flicker mind
Negative forces and pride unduly combined
Forgetting the real built inner common sense
Flying about the life’s magnificence

The other side to this is the reflection of sole infinity
Of the life, that hides amazingly in man’s mystery
Without an ‘I’, there is no life that can shine
For achievers of calmness in ‘I’ do see sunshine

The ‘I’ is an indulgence of one’s success and pride
Selfless services and thoughts to guide
Aiming to go above the limits of one ’s self
Will make success a mantra to cherish oneself

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
