Let Writings Live Long - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Writer or poet
Whoever you may be
Responsibility’s with you
In whatever you write
And reaches the reader
For written word’s believed
To be true even if
It’s all utterly untrue.

It goes without saying
Every page of writing
That gets out of hand
Needs to be checked and rechecked
For accuracy and correctness
Mockery, if any, all removed.

That’s the real way of paying
Respect to the reader
And it’s the only way to see
The writings’ll live long.

    Great advice, Sir. I am reminded of a Malayalam poem I read in my childhood. I am paraphrasing it below:

    If the unbearable arrows of words are released without care
    They would get into the ears and create wounds
    Which wouldn't heal even after years

    So let us be careful about what we write and speak. May I vote a ten for this?

    Writing is to be seen with reverence! Written word has great impact! So all writers should pay due attention to what thoughts they lay down on the paper! One who respects the reader cannot see his writing as a silly endeavour! Sound advice highlighting the importance of written word! (Report) Reply
