What is that?


When we are free,
what it is, that chained us,
with the hearts of others,
other than the love,
that we have upon them.

When we are free,
to earn and live alone,
what it is, that really matters,
to seek the opinions of others,
and has the value more than the love.

When we are free,
to choose and marry,
what it is, that instilled in us,
to get the consent of parents,
before every decision and event.

What is that?
That binds our hearts,
beyond the selfish love,
cares for one another,
any time and every where.

What is that?
That makes us to cry and despair,
for a selfless person,
who is not related to us,
but safe in our heart and thought.

    An extrovert personality feels sympathy for the suffering honest people, has respect, devotion and affection towards others. Intensity of the qn.'what is that? ' or 'what it is..' increases manifold on repetition (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
