They Say….


They say poetry is a fashion
But I say it is a deep passion

They say poetry is jumbled
But I say it is purely humbled

They say poetry is waste of time
But I say it is a sweet rhyme

They say poetry is crop of craze
But I say it is a hidden blaze

They say poetry is heap of stones
But I say it is a leap into unknowns

They say poetry is thoughtless act
But I say it is a self made pact

They say poetry is work of idlers
But I say it is a pilgrimage of thinkers

They say poetry is flight without wings
But I say it is a bird that sings
