Alive In Grave - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

“It is better to be called fool” legend says
Than called hero or successful
It shall take you no where
As you never deserved it

The foolish people may praise
Push you after goal to chase
That shall invite you to fall on ground
You will then no where to be found

It is better to be in good man’s company
You will not find the praises so many
Yet you will be guided properly
That shall make your life orderly

Never perform uncharitable act
People may certainly react
They will call you headless
Openly term you donkey and chase

It is better to spend life in isolation
Than remain in company with disputed relation
They will not only dig the grave
But push you alive in ditch to be called brave

    I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments. To me it is better to be alone and in isolation
    than remain in company with disputed relation. They will not only dig the grave, but
    push you alive in ditch to be called brave.
    Excellent depiction of the reality of being a hero or successful. People around you are
    usually shallow and dishonest, unable to be trusted to speak the truth or are jealous of
    your fame. Thank you, Hasmukh for you poem of reality in life. RoseAnn
