Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

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

Opium and drugs


The peace may not come easily
As it is not available readily
“Live and let others live” must be followed
Liberty and freedom must be allowed

The world shall never be peaceful
No individual may be successful
As it may be lacking peace at heart
The other happiness may be treacherous art

“More and more addition” will be the slogan
The mad chase and quest has begun
The people are after artificial happiness
The material gain can never grant then cheers on face

The illness and may follow and deteriorate the health
The peace may be miles away but me added more with wealth
The world will at doorsteps but with only illusion
“No one is real friend” may appear with confusion

You may go for opium and drugs
That shall provide you fall from rug
You will be lying flatly on ground
The peace may not be easily found

Follow the race that provided easy comfort
The ship must sail but reach safely at port
“What is use of such wealth that guarantees nothing”?
Look at sky and find the solution for better living

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
