Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

Purpose Of Life!

Let the things go on its own way.
For I am too designed to flow in certain way.
For no one can question the nature of hills and oceans.
Everything is illuminated for a particular time.
Every flower bloomed will have to wither away.
It's the duty of nature.
It's just reminding one should never forget their duty,
For whatever may hurdles your way!

A fear is a poisonous creeper which can pull one to bottom.
But one should rise from bottom
Not for self, but
To do all the duties one is entitled with...

Parents never forgets their duty towards children
Children should never forget theirs.
It's the chance gifted by God
To do something for their loved ones.
Yes, their blessings can do wonders in life.
It's like a feather added to the cap.
A smile if one could bring to their face.
One can tell purpose of life is served!

First illuminate your life with happiness
Then illuminate others too!
Be a burning lamp
To fill the others life with happiness and brightness!

    This poem of yours reminds me of a visit to an old age home. They only needed someone to make them happy and smile. Nuclear families have brought havoc. Your poem is timely. One has to perform his/her duty towards parents/society/country and justify their existence. A poem with a message. Lovely. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
