The Fort


With a certain thought
I built a mental fort
And fortified it further
With a deep, wide, moat.

A friend came knocking
A friendly thought,
But I dumped him blindly
In the deep, wide, moat.

No! my prejudiced mind
Was petrified like a stone
That if failed to recognize
What to accept or disown.

    A thought provoking poem. You have penned it very well. Some time it is very very difficult to recognise foe or friend. A fear in mind can make one feel all are foe, and these fear doesn't allow one to read a person and best friends are lost forever due to own mistake....Which is very sad. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
