Sad Good Bye - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I decide to stop posting
On "Muse India" with silent protest
As articles go unnoticed or unread
A sign of ungratefulness to the dead

May be poems are not up to standard
For which they may be considering as sub-standard
I am what I am and can never be changed
For poet, it is unbearable and must be well managed

I have often aired my grievance
On number of occasions and not once
It is shame for the poet not to have been heard
He can not be left behind without being read

It is not the question of forcing the readers
They are well judged and well read leaders
What can be read and what can be neglected remains their domain
I am ordinary poet so concern definitely remains

Even birds change nest when their existence is threatened
With a heavy heart to think of "no return"
Yet it is long association that pinches heart
Otherwise life is full of uncertainties and must find good start

I migrate to green world where I hope to settle
It may be possible there I will be among herds of cattle
Yet it is literary thrust that compels me to think on those terms
I shall have time to move in new world with no rich return

I thank to all who have helped me to encourage
Not to loose heart despite being outraged
The stage actor may definitely want little claps
Else it may called an visible insult amounting to slap

I shall endeavor to extend my support
To all those whom I consider needs good rapport
Little words of appreciation for their creative work
I must remain on their side without offering a jerk

    Hasmukh Bhai,



    “I migrate to green world where I hope to settle

    It may be possible there I will be among herds of cattle”



    These lines remind of Shelley’s Ode to the West Wind

    Your true feelings will always remain in my mind



    Do write something about the life of cattle

    The pastoral elements will show your mettle

    of course it's not the matter of forcing the readers...but there is a tenor between the reader n writer...n communication process does not get completed unless read n understood...n given the feedback.... (Report) Reply

    Understood William van NieuwenhuyzeLess than a minute ago I hear you. What I can say as an offer of support: work on your grammar, and never let the lack of votes or reviews stop you from writing. Some of the most popular poets do not write half as good as what I've read here, so don't worry, and have faith that poetry is not dead! Comment +1 good (Report) Reply

    Sorry to see you go, but I understand as it does seem that only a few read what others write.Most just post and don't bother to read what others say.God bless and grow as a poet may you find what you are looking for; ]
