Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

I am rebel

I am rebel
But never reveal
What is inside?
That forces me to divide

About opinion
To form union
Of thoughts
Without being fought

I have been cheated
Many times and vindicated
Still I got to stay among
Even if I was proved wrong

Who stays in this world?
Who can be wise and bold?
Who can act tit for tat?
And with skin so thick and fat

No need to feel bad
As it is not going to make you glad
It will always deject you
Force you to reject and misbehave

So in pond you find many creatures
Big and small one to venture
Carve out your way
And comfortably stay

World is not what you see
It has fruits but not like tree
You have to bend down branches
Take the short route to reach

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
