Treasure Island

Prateek Khard

(15/12/1992 / Niwari, Madhya Pradesh)

The Selfish Street

I fight,
Till the first Sunlight,
To cover the black under white,
But that’s not right,
Because I am fighting with the ‘Cheat’,
By living under the ‘Selfish Street’.

I do not deserve this!
And I do miss,
My innocent time,
Which vanished like a Rhyme.

Now I weep,
Inside very deep,
And I cannot sleep,
Till I sweep,
This Mess,
Which are making us ‘Less’.

And I will not stop,
No matter what I have to face,
Because I have joined a Race,
To be shown,
And to prove that,
In this Street I am not all alone.

And at last we will experience together,
That this Selfish Street teaches us to differentiate
The ones which are ‘Ours’ with the ‘Others'.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
