Simplicity Poem by Ruta Mohapatra

Simplicity

Rating: 4.8


Your complex thoughts on complex issues
Can't they be expressed in simple lines?

Like water which one can drink
And quench the thirst for knowledge?

What is the use of books if one cannot eat it
Like an apple and digest the juice?

Your thoughts which others can internalize
And see through your eyes

See what you see
Feel what you feel

Only then will you succeed
As a writer or a poet
