Treasure Island

Tajudeen Shah

(India.)

Visions Bright, Delights Intact.


A raffle coupon costs a sum paltry,
If won, the reward could be A million.
An array of long-cherished dreams
Might get realized pretty well,
Just once, for the one who has won.
Dreams would still pile up
To hope for treasures unearned,
Even after the million won has gone.
A BOOK would cost much less,
Causing generations to WIN
Wisdom beyond measures.
This Key would sure warrant one
To open varied vaults of imaginations,
Passions, Dreams, Facts and Morals.
A due exchange of them would bless
Generations with treasures immense.
Only toiled riches would keep
Visions bright and delights intact.

A humble plea, reminder to the fellow beings, a reprimand to the youngsters to harness themselves towards earning unbounded riches using the wisdom-key. God Bless.

    Quite true...! Easy cash in piles is not so valuable as hard earned currency numbered! But the value of knowledge and wisdom far surpasses all that money can buy! ! A great message in a great poem! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay
