Seduction Of Vices


Left and right from all the sides
I’m fastened with many illusions
Lust, greed, pride and anger
And many more vices' seductions.

The more I’m trying to be liberated from them
The more they are engulfing with their alluring arms.
So notorious, so injurious are these vices all around
They allure, they induce and they pull me in the darkest den.

By any means they are shadowing my wisdom and knowledge.
They glitter like mirages with fascinating gloss
to captivate in their laid down web as a prey of themselves.
Finally they drown me in a big dark black hole
To put to an end.

    Another excellent poem, Amitava. An intelligent depiction of the many vices
    we all must strive to avoid, lest we become a part of their injurious ways and
    drown in the black hole. Intense and knowledgeable poem about the reality
    of our lives on earth. Thank you for portraying this problem of today's world
    with such honesty and truthfulness. You are the truth-sayer, Amitava! !

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
