Immortals Poem by Vaibhav Pandey


Rating: 4.3

To understand the logic of greatness,
we need to be inexplicably illogical,
Neither by the artistic brilliance, never,
Nor by the philantropic demeanour,
Can one withstand Achilles, the warrior.

Those legends of the past, immortals.
Their surreal saga, immutable.
Gifted with the glory, unmatchable.
Surpassing their Stature, impossible.
Exactness of their excellence, debatable.........

The irony of your last line rounds off this fine poem with aplomb. I like too, the paradox you describe. Mystery and paradox are the twin pedestals upon which wisdom sits. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Dear Vaibhav, Brilliance or Greatness may always be debatable since hardly we find someone following the same path again.Present would have been different perhaps, if we have followed the gospels properly. The use of matephors are unique. You are doing well at your age. Best of luck.--Rajkumar 9

Dear Vaibhav, it appears that you were once History student and yore you speak with the past glory. It is the age of nuke. But history never dies for particulars. History reminder is in the poem. Good work..

Some people do seem larger than life and truly immortal. I consider Mother Theresa one of those special people. Nice poem, Vaibhav! Best Wishes, Marilyn
