Where Are We?


The beautiful red rose,
The magnificent blue ocean,
The rich starry sky,
The opulent green mountains,
The soft toes of the new-born...
Beauty, they define in wholeness
They never bank on your praises,
Truth, they radiate with such aplomb!

Where are we getting lost?
In our delusions we search for answers, never questioned!
Beautiful in our minds, but we perceive little,
Beggars we are, imprisoned in our blind pursuits,
Dwarfed in our conscience, and the ego speaks it all!

We seek for not the truth,
We are the eternal slaves of high ambitions-
Enemies we make, more than friends in our endeavors
Yes, we are slaves, slaves in an endless competition!

    We often put ourselves into senseless competitions to make our lives tougher and clumsier. You have brought this point home succinctly. A well written poem. I rate it 9/10.
    'Beggars we are, imprisoned in our blind pursuits,
    Dwarfed in our conscience, and the ego speaks it all! '
    True, the 'blind pursuits' dwarf our conscience.
    'Enemies we make, more than friends in our endeavors
    Yes, we are slaves, slaves in an endless competition! '
    A deep thought, a point to ponder.
    Greetings and wishes for a very happy new year. (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
