A Fool In A Million Ways - Poem by Syed Mizbahuddeen

They say that life is short in its span,
So go with the world if it’d change,
But I am not an adjustable spanner,
To change with people in every aspect and manner

The world’s in its doom and foolish ways,
With righteousness and modesty having no remains,
Trends will come and trends will change,
But to the surprise of the world I've my own ways

My words can, but not change the world,
And revert it back to the simpler days,
But someday, the world will know it’s a fool being made,
By money and gold in a million ways


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The world stands for the people in this poem.

    I like the way you have come up with the theme of the poem. Great work but i think in a poem if you are rhyming stuff then the whole poem should be equally rhymed. It shouldnt be like one rhyme here and there and in other stanzas no rhyme. Maybe You Could Check That. Anyways Great Work! Really Loved The Message Of The Poem: D (Report) Reply
