The Beauty Of Its Unique Design


there are empty
shells and yet possess still
the beauty of its
unique design
holder of songs still
if you hold them closer to
your ears

there are too,
empty hearts and empty people,
who by their own
merit, and style and personal touch
are still imbued with
beauty and grace

they have their own beautiful stories
to tell
that only if you listen,
will amaze you to no end

by all means, do not take pride
of your fullness
for soon, you will be emptied still
like an empty shell you too shall keep a song
like an empty heart, you too shall fill it with sadness
which, i must not lament,
has its own
innate beauty too

did i not tell you that sadness is beautiful too?
that beauty is like a fan with many blades
wide and long and
makes you refreshed
in humid places like
us?

sometimes if you note,
we are simply places, not people,
simply numbers, not humans

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
