Martin Kathavi Poems
From Ashes To Ashes And Dust To Dust
It comes out of darkness It do not give signals It is uncontrollable It is strange, invisible and Fame. It is 'DEARTH'
The Creator's Creation
Hear the sound of wind blowing Feel the fresh air that you can't see
As I opened my history book, began to read a familiar name came into view. One as a child I had heard my father speak of so often.
The Woman You Married
You got married because of love The women you met long time ago is not the women you are married to now The love you married for has disappeared
A Friendly Warning
If you are not proud of nobody than at least be proud of yourself If you can't do it for anyone than do it for yourself If if don't need help than get it done by yourself I can't judge you nor you can judge yourself
As I opened my history book, began
to read a familiar name came into
view. One as a child I had heard my
father speak of so often.
