White and Black


Paper white
Money black
Day night
We back
And we slack.
White paper
Black money
We can't
change any.
Paper can be white
Money can not be black
Worry not, Santosh
Worry about yourself.

    Interesting poem! I think it's peculiar that people work their whole lives for money only to be subsequently enslaved by money...the irony! Anyways, I think often we try to change everything around us, but never even started to think of changing ourselves int he first place. I think this is very well embodied in your last two lines.

    The best advice. Sometimes, we worry about too many things. And, as you've said, we can't change any. Good poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
