Treasure Island

I am back again

“Life has become hell” she just cried on phone
I was driven sad and all hopes were dashed and gone
She was to die in few days and had been known to her
This broke me down and added few more things to bother

Brother had departed heavenly abode few years back
Everything went into flames and many things were at stake
She was to prove brave in many respects and stood ground n well
She was embodiment of strength and her story was enough to tell

I rushed to her burial place and consigned body to flames
She had died after great pain and agony for nothing to claim
Normal lady to her self but dedicated to children and cause
Every woman may some times like to ponder to and pause

It is life circle that one has to face sooner or later
At some stage the fears may suddenly take over
When you are so much occupied with worldly affairs
Some of the things you may hardly like but dare

I did feel helpless on this occasion
There is nothing more to mention
Yet this occasion can’t be brushed aside
As every religion speaks in volumes and widely

It is certainly futile on our part to stick
To an extreme end unnecessarily pick
It is certainly going to add woes in our life
As it amounts to struggle against odd of cutting knife

It is good to pick up threads and move on
As without struggle no game is won
We are all pawn in Almighty’s game
It is in your hand to accept or blame

I am back on road to move ahead
I would love to be told and led
Life without struggle can be just a fool’s paradise
As there wont’ be any challenges or promises

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
