Treasure Island

Sanjukta Basu


I must be happy


Presently I am looking for a new start
You’ve been a great person
So I am not all in tears
If you’ll catch me in couple of years
You’ll See
My life is just the way it needs to be
Nice job, couple of kids and a husband

Who knows when exactly you are happy
Is it the good food or the movie,
The car or the painting on your wall,
Is it the kids playing in the backyard
Or their father who won’t let them fall

Well for me
It’s the one who originally meant to be
But you know that’s only me

    Hi madam,

    It was really good. I specially liked the undercurrent of pain in the narrator's voice.

    Regards

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,
