I Have To


I have to perform
My duty first
Fostering others
Doing good.

I have my own
Intellect power
Time materials
All provided by You.

O my dear
I have to serve You
As parents wife
Sons sisters.

No expectation
Of reward from
Anybody
Only claim on service.

I do not know
Whether my duties
Will add to the
Welfare of the world.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
