Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Never say die

Never say die, you have no way
As you may also go any one day,
you may be laid on grounds as soul lost,
carried by those whom you hated most,

Immortal you are not so never word spell,
Name may remain but bade farewell,
nothing is permanent, all stands to vanish,
Game will be over when you are finish,

Mortal remains behind soon to be buried,
No one will resent and funeral be hurried
Good work appreciated when you are carried,
Not good words heard even at time married,

Whoever is on earth will have to depart,
Things not purchased as you think from mart,
Think always good and not part ways,
All noble advises and morality says,

Gone was never yours so cry not for spoil,
not left will be yours even when you boil
Why then be upset? when attempts foil,
Body will perish and merged with the soil,

Go to Thy's shelter, arms ever inviting,
No good or bad always keep uniting,
No creed. Faith, colour or cast
Destination one when you breath last,

So be it to yourself,
say no, hear no and speak also not,
Evil will remain evil even hide in pot
Truth always plain, touch you feel hot

Never remorse for past or act ill,
For there may be behind HIS strong will
Stay put behind and bad wish always kill,
Inner voice be heard, eternal joy fill

Go to HIS fold with approach bold,
you may be cared and also spared,
when near an end you may also bend
Till laid to rest you have means to mend.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
