Chiselled Diamond - Poem by Vinita Sahu

The depth into his eyes said more than they did,
The glint into them spoke more of the smoke,
That life had played by it's paltry flick,
Not that he was was unable to deal with it,
But the mark it left on his body and soul,
Couldn't be hidden behind a drapery stole.

The grind along with its incessant blows,
Chiselled a diamond out of the stone,
That dazzled for many, not him alone,
The path though rocky, throng with thorns,
His feet did bleed with fortune's horns,
But wealth was worthy more than the churn.

Who said the blood and sweat one drains,
Goes down to bring only pain as gain?
The journey of human when quite humane,
Certainly returns with a beautious fountain,
Of peace, love, harmony and endearing trail,
That fills all craters and scars till evenly plain.

    Life's churn either makes you or breaks you, it's your intellect upon which you should bank, which helps you to discrimitate well between the options available! (Report) Reply
