Rise to Prosper

to naked truths - acceptance

My rise and prosperity
If a problem for you!
My rise and prosperity
Posing an opportunity for you?
Then I rise further to prosper
Giving better opportunities
But finding better ways
Not to be a problem for you!

But also remember the truth
That when I once ruled the scene
You built your empire on pyres
Of civilizations that died unfortunate

So rise like a bush of roses
Present the world with better thoughts
With the fragrance of humble offerings
And be remembered for trouble shooting
Than remaining makers of wars unlimited

Author's comments:
Leave the world a better place without adding to controversies This poem refers to the controversy over comments made by Rice and Bush with regard to reasons they offered for inflation. Rice nd Bush said that the middle class in India and China were making demands for better nutrition and living. The difference was that Rice felt it was a problem whereas Bush looked at the situation as an opportunity to push agro products to the market. But they both forgot that their own prosperity was built on the dying Mayan and Red Indian civilisations that once prospered as India shone with prosperity at that time

Poem of the Day


Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
