I'M Indebted - Poem by Neela Nath Das

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.

    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
