Treasure Island

Aishah Bibi


oh tolerance, oh tolerance
we need you here,
can't you see were all in fear.

without tolerance,
it would be a bad place,
swearing, shouting what a disgrace.

i sit and think,
i wish the world could chage in a blink,
instead of shoving each other's head down the sink.

i swear i remember you once,
oh yeh your the one who blazed my face,
as i said the world's a disgrace.

oh tolerance, oh tolerance
we need you here,
cant you smell war's coming near,
can't you see were all in fear.

    Dear Poet,
    Yes, Tolerance, we are in sore need!

    Many a millions been humiliated,
    Much more often mutilated.

    Boundless been wounded by rage.
    See! The shameful acts of this age!

    What we bards can do is a lot,
    By sharpening pens for a jot.

    When spiteful demons keep the hurt,
    Let us cause the tolerance sprout.

    I am in delights unfathomable, as your verses caused me to respond you quick.
    Keep penning well.
    Great Regards.
    Tajudeen Shaha

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
