An Ode To Poemhunter - Poem by Miraj Raha

In this august assembly, I stand
witnessing the amalgamation of poets
from all the corners of the world.

Where race, color, culture, religion
all at once become meaningless,
and in the end I see only One thing
of eternal value, Humanity.

Through the poems, I acquire wisdom, Love,
anguish, happiness, sorrow, laughter, pain,
and an unlimited diversity of Expressions,
yet in the end, all I am able to understand
better is none other than My own Self.

I realize how beautiful is Happiness,
how powerful is Pain, how deep is a feeling
but still there is this subtle perception,
that the Ultimate Goal is to rise above
them All.

I thank you PoemHunter for providing
this platform of constant wonder, like a
vast ocean, and waves after waves they come,
just when I feel, I have seen the most perfect piece
of work, along comes another one.

    ..but still there is this subtle perception,
    that the Ultimate Goal is to rise above
    them All..

    wonderfully depicted.. the evolutionary path of consciousness - to rise and rule over others -
    for the mind to be crowned..Thanks for sharing this poem, Miraj..hope to hear from you soon, all the best!
