Idealist


We have no dearth for such idealists
We can go on adding names in the list
What more proof we need for stupidity?
When we have everything to prove capability

Fools ask for proof
Even if they have no roof
To provide shelter for family
And look towards sky for mercy

He cares for old customs
But for poverty seldom
Self pride and honor comes on the way
That pushed him still away

Jealousy never dies
He stands there with no more try
He cares for what others say!
Ruins own heaven and spoils day

He will try to prove more
As if world may survive no more
He has worries for entire universe
Even ready to share the burden and curse

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
