The banks of a river

Every river has two banks
like pains and pleasures
joys and sorrows
love and peace

Two banks of river
makes an eloquent appeal
to flow ever and ever
devoid of two banks
the existence of river diminishes

Like two banks of river
help it to flow, the life also flows
within its two banks
otherwise, it will diminish.

    Challenges go with which side you are incumbent upon.People wants not to see life flooded otherwise with troubles.Flood could well be symbolics of money being earned and drought could well be free access to land which is nowaday a water management drudgery in India.Researches show rivers breaking parts of India specially Jalangi and making parts of thatched huts and muds in Bangladesh.Written well in this context.

    Nice poem with logic
    Nice to read too...10

    Every coin has two sides
    Angles different and wide
    Nothing to conceal or nothing to hide
    Life as such is cleverly denied

    You are at mercy
    Believe in him and obey as almighty
    Either chooses between good and bad
    Later on regret and feel sad (Report) Reply
