Is iT LiFe?


Trying hard to live having small to give
Is it life?

Don’t know how far to go
before I step on a bomb and blow
If lucky lose some part
If not gone just like that
Is it life?

My skin color black
My future kind of dark
Fight here and war over there
Cause? no one is aware
It is life?

Born with no fear
Learned all to bear
Die knowing life is dear
With out knowing peace and love
Or even coming near..!

    Konjit.... This is heart felt and my favorite of your poems so far. What I want to see now is your biography. Also... with you being in danger it is your duty through your words, your powerful words, to show the world change is needed. I think that that would best fit your mission of becoming a better poet. Practice bringing reality of your surroundings to us.... I know I want to see more. Thanks for reading and liking my poems. Later my friend. Rick (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
