Subtle Fight

From stone age
To present times
A subtle fight
With the might of time.

As was then
Hasn't changed
Million years hence
Still, a subtle fight
With the might of time.

Has held that state
Which our ancestors faced
A character
Which has
The entire humanity dazed.

Still, a subtle fight
With the might of time
All endeavours
Of humanity have failed.

    We can`t call it a mission impossible, we are standing confounded and less spirited on the pavement of these happenings of diametrically polar identities. An optimistic note from any of us can reverse the situation either. It is yet another gem of your poetic concerns.Well written Mr Mehta. (Report) Reply

    Really war and strife is as old as human civilization. So many great personalities came but no one was able to stop it for good and make all dogmas and races as one. We wonder about our future. Beautiful write (Report) Reply

    We can't fight against time and predestined future, yet we brag of our futile power. Thanks for inviting. (Report) Reply

    In the final end it will all be futile
    We can shruge our shoulders
    and either give up or go on like nothing will ever change
    I will choose the latter.
    Very good poem Sanjay. Makes one ponder the bleak
    future of mankind. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
