Sanket Kumar Singh


The Agnostic


On barren lands
He stands
With in hs hands
Few grains of sand.

He tries to see
Past the horizon
Seeking the sea
Sinking into oblivion.

On this Earth
To find some mirth
He continues with his progression
From lesion to lesion.

Though he be all alone
And with pain, moans
And being upset groans;
He does race
Away from almighty's grace
Seeking joy
But finding its decoy.

    I agree with Marcus. The rhyme is a little forced, but otherwise it's an interesting poem that presents quite a consuming (?) problem of the human race.: D Thank you for sharing it and keep up the good work! (Report) Reply

    your concept is good but your forcing the rhyme a little. the second verse is the best. a good start for a young poet. (Report) Reply
