Gold Star - 26,822 Points (3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Short and long

Short and long
Nothing is there
You can say short
Or long.

No point to measure
Here or there
In upper or lower
In this fair.

You can express
Your desires
And you can enter
From any point near
Or there.

Mixed unmixed
You can find
That is fixed
In you in me.

If we wish
We can change
Anything at
Anytime but for why?

But for why
Is a question
To be ask within
And action be taken.

The action you have
And its effect
Should for common good
The Ultimate Truth.

    you change as you change, you can be short or tall as you expressed in your poems and you can be wide or skinny as a tooth pick. you grow as you will grow.
    but the changes within you you do your self. (Report) Reply
