Treasure Island

INDIA'S PLIGHT


I AM INDIA
In-dependent and Free

When I close my eyes…….
And try to look inside…
I find….
My HEART beating
Pulse rate is high…
I am afraid I might die of HEART ATTACK…


My BRAIN receiving and passing signals
But is infected with tumor…
I am afraid of dying through BRAIN TUMOR...


I raised both of my ARMS
But I found them putrid
As impure blood is running in the veins…

I want to run away..
I want to be free in real sense..
OHHH…I am PARALYZED..

I am blubbering from inside..
Yelling and mourning for help..
As i am frail and sick
My co-workers are taking un-due advantage

I am getting dumped for free…

STOP! STOP! PLEASE STOP!

In trepidation my eyes opened….
And I QUESTIONED myself…

Was it my BAD DREAM or REALITY or MY FUTURE? ? ? ?

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,
