Bronze Star - 5,285 Points (Kerala Palakkad)


What should I answer for your questions
Answer lies restricted deep down my heart.
For my mouth will remain stitched ever
Even if you call me heartless
I will not utter a word!
I am bounded by restrictions.

Life is very beautiful
Those who live only know
They are dying each minute they live.
One Beautiful Life I am blessed with
But Bounded by many restrictions!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have faced this situation many times, I prefer to remain silent. I think bitter words can just create ill feelings. By using some bitter words, I will definitely hurt others, but I will surely regret later.... I always pray I never slip any bitter words. Rather I prefer to take any bitter words which others want to tell for me..There are many cases where I am right...Still I think silence is golden, even if I am mistaken in any sense. This is nothing but a test of life. I have experienced the worst state too, where I cried silently for being misunderstood. It hurts me deep...But now I have taken it as a part of life......All is well....

    Only a caged bird realizes the worth of the free sky! To a certain extent, restrictions are nice so that you'll be able to cherish freedom better as darkness accentuates light! Nice poem, Geetha! (Report) Reply

    Life is restricted and constrained. One must live within those bounds together with all the bonds. Nicely developed in the poem (Report) Reply

    Two lines from me: -
    Kisne manga tha kub kisi se qarz, haye majboor hayn azal se hum,
    Zidigi jaisi shay ke badle mein apne jazbat hay rehen aiy dost.
    (Who asked for a loan of life, we are helpless since ever, Yyou have mortgaged our sentiments for this imposed loan) (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
