Treasure Island

Shagun Khera

(09 June 1984 / Delhi)

Men of Honor...

Clutching to the slipping sheets of time

They face uncertainty like accusers of a crime

Fallen, betrayed, twisted and played

Experimented with love

Left with hate

They walk on the pieces of their broken hearts

Men of honor..

On a prowl for a better start

Witnessed the changing colors of the sky

Blue to black, wicked to stupefying

Misery accompanies them in their adventure for hope

Lessons learnt from the dust in throat

Tagged with the glory of insignificance

Men of three think hard and hence..

Not to be the puppets of emotions they are meant..

Men of honor

Testing the depths of pain and suffering

Diving into the void of an absolute nothing

Verifying the existence of their stoic static

Realizing the realization of those betrayal tactics

They guard the numb walls of their souls thwarted by false hopes

Men of honor

They wave goodbye as the love elopes

Men of honor

They can never love again

Men of honor

Deny walking the same path again

Men of honor

Now rule their world

Men of honor

Till the very end

Men of honor

Standing tall by their stand
Men of honor

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
