Treasure Island

Neela Nath


I'm Indebted


Many days have passed,
I enjoyed as a must,
every minute as daughter,
of my parents' first.
Then as student, teacher,
and a dutiful wife.
I came in this world,
to end my task of life.
Destined to perform,
my work as an honest
person and half-span,
spent, awaiting the rest!
But, i can't give back,
nature, the things she,
gifted me to breathe,
to eat, supplying energy,
How could I payback you,
Oh! Nature just tell me!
I'm indebted to you,
and drowning in debt's sea.

    wow..this is so true..i think yes God gives us so many gifts each day..even the air we breathe..so how are we ever suppose to pay him..it is almost impossible..we need to say thank you every time we open our mouth..can you imagine..we are all indebted..this is the truth.. :) (Report) Reply

    Your tribute to nature is a token your good mindset in inter action with nature. Nature never asks for anything back..
    The greedy brethren of yours are the monsters here and not you a lady with duteous life to spare for others. A good piece Ms Nilakshi (Report) Reply
