When an ant was speaking to God in his dream

Great one,
I won’t take long, very soon
I will be done

I am ordinary
Note—not extra-ordinary

At times I am unwanted,
Most of the times, I remain unnoticed

I am neither invincible
Nor incredible

Great one,
I wish I was visible

I hurt them because they do the same
I hate them because they do the same

I know you’re in a haste
‘Coz I know I am a waste

I am no one grand
So you may or may not grant
My last wish—to be somebody!

    It is a well expressed analogy without too much frivolousness. The naivete works because you keep it totally unsophisticated. Well written. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
