Seeking Solace In Poetry Poem by Jaishree Nair

Seeking Solace In Poetry

Rating: 5.0


Never realised that writing poetry
Could be so fulfilling;
All you need-a pen and paper
To vent out emotions overflowing.

Serenity and tranquility!
Like a dessert after a spicy meal;
And comments add flavour delicious-
In this World of Letters precious.

Disclosure and interchange;
Criticism or appreciation;
by the wielders of pen...
All enough to boost one's morale.

Write like you have never written before;
Write like there is no tomorrow;
'Cause who knows whats in store-
There may never be a morrow.

Atrocities, conflicts, corruption -insane;
Malpractice, political vengeance, religious disputes -insane;
To spit venom vile;
Harming oneself in the while

The ultimate end of all life;
No escape from that doom ordained,
Why leave behind hate and misery-
When we have time to love and enjoy.

Realisation dawns late,
Stop before too late!
Birth and death is destined-
In between is the time to live and let live.

All should try a hand at poetry;
It purifies your soul,
Stale breath exhaled;
Fresh ones inhaled;
Pent up emotions let out;
The chain of bondage broken.

Free like a flying bird
Up in the air on cloud nine;
There are no constricts and constraints here
Just the freedom to share

And let the world know
Your thoughts, and visions rare,
And create an identity-
The real YOU, you and only you

In a world that spits venom, poetry is a real solace! But unfortunately only a few realize that! Poem hunter is a great forum for like minded people to congregate and share their thoughts and fancies! Your enthusiasm as a poet is well expressed in these lines! Enjoyed!

A poet is born, but sometimes he doesn't know that he is a poet. Once he starts writing poems he is amazed to note that he can write poems....................10
