I Will Not Tell You Poem by Dr Dillip K Swain

I Will Not Tell You

Rating: 5.0


I will not tell you
why do I like innocent girls?

I will not tell you
why do I stare
at the natural beauty of
a beautiful smiling lady?

I will not tell you
why do I love
orphan children?

I will not tell you
why do I like
tiny butterflies?

I will not tell you
why do I spend
hours and hours together
watching the beauty of
the azure sky, the crescent moon,
the mountain, the fountain,
the gurgling river
and the beauty of nature?

I can't tell you
why do I spend my time
watching the rhythm of ebb and tide
of an ocean?

I will not tell you
why do I love my mother,
my wife and my sister?

I will not tell you
why do I hate a liar?

I will not tell you
why do I like
the person whom you dislike?

I will not tell you
When will I write
And what will I write?

I will not tell you…

I like the construction of this poem---it has a dignity and a power that many of us wish to convey and fail to do---5 stars, my friend

You are hundred percent right...certain things need not necessarily be disclosed at all in life....one's personal taste is one such....interesting poem

It's wonderful. The resonance of 'I will not tell you' lend a musicality to the poem that is so appealing to the senses. I also love the concept of the poem that it's not necessary to give a reason for every thought or act.
