Han Min Ohn

Rookie - 0 Points (29.7.1983 / Yangon)

White, white lies

Making a wish, knowing it will not come true
Refusing to face the fact, willing to be eluded

Making a promise, knowing it cannot be fulfilled
Regarding it as a comfort, rather than a betray

Making a decision, knowing it is very wrong
Pretending it is right, making oneself strong

Making a lie, knowing it is a wickedness
Speaking it without hesitation, under the context of kindness

Making a struggle, knowing it is not easy
Acting like a strong one, making the others happy.

    I love it, especially the verse,
    Making a struggle, knowing it is not easy
    Acting like a strong one, making the others happy.
    I 'm sure that you are the one that can polish the keen colors of Myanmar!
    I really appreciate you and also be proud of you! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
