Treasure Island

Aimanu Begum

The sea within

My world
static now.
I am dead to everything
except the sound of the sea
that is within me.
No more calm
but raging with a storm,
the angry waves lashing
against the high cliffs.
But the sea is deep,
down in my heart.
None can witness
the tumult from outside,
the impregnable stoical exterior
bearing no sign of the inner trepidation.

A voice calls out to me
above the howling sound of the sea.
Slowly I raise my head
and see myself, calm and intrepid.
Am I the weary sailor
waiting to be washed ashore
after my ship sinks?
My spirit will no longer languish
but ready to override
the storm than wait for it to subside.
For I love the song of the sea
that is in me,
the soft murmur
when it is calm and when the billows roar.
The heart recognizes in them the melodies
and whispers the both tones.

    it is myth and mistake upon us
    the way of finding peace, calm and love
    when it comes warmth you glace for some extra
    for real you should abandon all
    then keep path towards sela or jungle
    no diiference can be found
    because to find peace you can roam any where but it do not have a certain place
    keep this prayer to be friend forever as
    you with nature and you with unseen mermering
    many were here hearing this song (Report) Reply

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;
