Can A Poet Surrender To Misery!

You can break the neck of a poet
to stop a hand to write

Translated as determination

Child bids us bye

I am a child
You are grown

Artificial Rain

When nature works to give rain
it is all - gain and gain

I am tomorrow

The child, ever innocent
Man's only survival asset

The Best Poem Of arvind shah

Can A Poet Surrender To Misery!

Can A Poet Surrender To Misery!

You can break the neck of a poet
to stop a hand to write
but the soul will spiral
spirits of expression, to run
none could kill the instinct
and none can kill the instinct.

All oceans - in a drop do lie
that a poet holds in his eye
and a world wells up in him
trickles: an extinct jewel, grim
to see unleash of a misery:
a story, of a story, in a story.

A poet puts spirit of soul in a word
the expressions to be heard -
creates, a throbbing heart scene
for heartful feelings to be seen -
strength of spirit has power: immense
to set in a sense for, sense - nonsense.

When poet is severed from ancestry
heritage belonging and home of history
displaced physically - wears torture agony,
bruised, blue and black signs to carry
memory of the Homeland gets him into the ill world of inhumane human.

In memory of homeland, which he was forced to flee 25 years back.
