My patience

Last night, I attended a funeral
It was death of my patience

It got 'infected' long time back,
I can't remember exactly when
May be, when the reform process,
got a set-back,
& nation was put to shame

From poll-tricks to politics,
the leaders kept on changing loyalty
'Opportunism' is on agenda,
national pride is not on priority

It's said that history repeats itself,
it seems, we are repeating the history
With un-natural collisions & dirty politics on,
leaders' interest is no longer a mystery

My patience could not take it anymore,
it was on bed rest & facing a tough fight
With overdose of conspiracy, betrayal & compromise,
It finally died last night

(A tribute to the prevailing political situation in NEPAL)

    patience is the patient here...when patience dies anger takes birth...now what are you going to do with your anger, Deepen? nothing...well, we could only get angry and annoyed by seeing the dirty tricks politicians play constantly...a good write... will look better off if those insertion commas are removed...10 (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
