hasmukh amathalal

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

Put into shame


I could be easily put into shame
“You black” followed by rude name
I used to feel bad very much
There was no use to react for it as such

Accept the human birth as reality
Whether you are born with ugliness or with beauty
People will not let you be peaceful
You will always curse self and feel remorseful

“Have faith in your self” and try to assert
You are not here to revert
The cycle that has been put in motion
You have to keep it on with simple rotation

Real test may come when you are among people
Shoulder to shoulder and helping them in struggle
People may not look there at your ugliness
“You will be seen as messiah” on their face

Good wife may be looking ugly but kind at heart
Husband may see in her Almighty’s art
For him she is like heavenly sent angel
Looks after him in all the respects and cares well

Keep heart in purest form
That will always keep you warm
No comment may affect your course
As you have already set it of course

    Deepika Singh Dear brother Hasmukh Mehta..then if i am unequivocally, intrinsically, imperfectly beautiful. I am beautiful for all my flaws. And I’m allowed to love myself for every one of them..You will never be perfect, but you will always be worthy..

    Deepika Singh Accept yourself..Insecurity is what’s ugly, not you. Be you, just the way you are, in the beautiful way only you know how.the way you treat yourself sets the standard for others.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
