WE NEED LOVE


we have forgotten the spirit
subjected to material things
we are full of treachery..we need love immediately
we lie and swindle..sole job fancy and dreaming
we think it is humanity..but we need love immediately

respect is far far aways..everywhere slang sways
customs and traditions are abolished bluntly
unaware we need love immediately
smiling to face..swearing behind..
sins and offenses of every kind

the world is useless in vain, , life a lie..lasts never
soul goes out..estate stays still ever and ever
we lack only love.. believe me
we need love immediately

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire

But if it had to perish twice,
