Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

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

I did not believe

I did not believe when life was lived
I even did not bother when it was not believed
I looked towards sky and wondered
Is this the one worthy life that is offered?

I contested the claim
Professor Einstein was shame
Galileo was not worth
When all these people could not conquer the death

Napoleon wanted whole world
But retraced steps and developed cold
The great Ashoka won the war and lost
Probably he did not realize colossal loss with cost

What have I to carry as an ordinary man?
Worries, pain and to be treated as inhuman
I search the answer but fail every time
May be someone may come forward to offer sometimes

Are we burden on this earth?
Have we to live under fear and be afraid of death?
I may not act as philosopher
There may be then tussle between believer and non-believer

Surest way I found was simple love
Give and take if someone believed
Limited circle to be found in crowd
And utter gospel’s word loud

There is no magic in divine words
But millions live with belief in this world
With only one hope to survive
Stay among brethren and safely drive

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
