A True Story - Poem by Kranthi Pothineni

I sat down to write
To write my heart out
To write out my feelings
That is burned deep inside
Deep inside my beating heart

Want to write a story
A story of real life
Real life of one man
From his birth to date
Whom I knew very close

He is good at heart
He is very kind soul
He likes kids a lot
He always speaks truth
Even when it is costly

His life is never smooth
It never smiled at him
Smiles once in blue moon
Only to show him blues
Its part of his life

His path is never straight
It’s filled with twists
It’s filled with turns
Turns exactly at last minute
And makes him fall again

So people ignore him
They ignore his presence
Even by his relations
Even by his friends
He is always ignored

But they joke on him
They laugh at his life
They make fun of him
They say he is fool
Even before a stranger

But he never ignored them
Nor made fun of them
He even laughs with them
For their jokes on him
He took all with silence

He still lives with smile
He still lives with love
He still lives with heart
He told me one thing
“I am the chosen one”

    again...its a deep spiritually inclined piece that espouses shunning the self

    a subject perpetually in the focus of philosophers and sages
    great write...superb subject

    this poem can be taken as a two -fold
    it could be about a person now known, or it can be a spiritual poem
    relating to christ.

    either way, it is a good write. a ten.

    We, as writers or poets, write(s): what we feel, what we observe, what our own views and opinions, and others as well. Taking all the subjective and objective matters into you pointed out what the protagonist feels and described his life in a summary form. I may look at this as a biographical poetry as you are describing yourself in this piece....Penned nicely in eloquence and great rhythm......... (Report) Reply
