Arrogant Words - Poem by vijay gupta

Arrogant words
I have passed enough time in the shadow of arrows.
They hurt me
but I am alive.
They only hurt my body
not to my soul.
Once an arrow of the words hit me
It hit my heart and soul both.
I can never forget it.
I believe that I will die with the pain given by this arrow.
This arrow of words was shot
by my beloved-one not by my enemy.
So I realize that think
twice before shooting the arrows of the words.
(From diary of a soldier)

    Nice poems...

    Children are hurt most
    That is at the personal cost
    Their mind accepts ho harassment
    It should be avoided by parents
