Treasure Island

Dr.Rajendra Tela,Nirantar


If I find myself helpless today


If I find myself
Helpless today
Why should
I worry
Yesterday
When I was not
Helpless
I helped
Many helpless
Why then
Today
Few of them
Would not come
For my rescue
I have lived with
The conviction
I shall live with
Conviction
All people are not
Thankless

    Beautiful poem especially related to todays practical world.
    Sir, humanity is too far away. Once I was completely down with high fever, a female member in our house not even bothered to ask how I was, she called guests for dinner on same day. I went all the way to doctor and insisted on injection, so that I can at least stand on my feet and finished all the work. I don't have any servant for any job.
    Once my one hand got fractured and I just got delayed in making lunch, she cursed me black and blue. Using one hand, I did all my work.
    Sir, if the members in a family cannot show humanity or words of gratitude then what to expect from anyone outsider. Life has taught so much that, I don't feel anything. To be frank I don't wait for any soothing words nor thankful words from anyone. I will do whatever I can do for others. Yes, many times I got help from unexpected persons. Only once I met one person in Orkut, seeing my depressed words, he chatted with me for more than 3 hrs. He was related to some Sat-sang. His divine words really encouraged me a lot.

    Thanks a lot for your many new and encouraging poems, though I didn't comment on it either. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
