Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Those were the days


It is not simple faith
That awaits destiny as death
Life needs advancement
To explore and involve in movement

Those were the days
When we had simple means
Life was to be spent with good status
Now it is with show off minus happiness

Roads are full of vehicles
To survive and stay needs struggle
Life has become cheap and unworthy
Seek blessings always from almighty

Yes now mind has become fertile
It has not remained on earth meanwhile
It has traveled far across the sky
The people have readied to fly

Yes today’s youth needs encouragement
No simple old days can cement
The wishes with fulfillment of desire
We are on the verge of scaling in entirety

Space travel may become easy
World may still come closer even though remains busy
Materialism is in fore and demands more
Human mind may not rest until scores

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
