Solomon's Wisdom - Poem by Dr Hitesh Sheth

Nothing is worthwhile or worthy to find;
Everything is futile, like chasing the wind.

The breathless sun chases the darkness since ages
The God hounds the wickedness with sages

The Birds chirp to awaken men from sleep;
Prophets descend to dislodge men's darkness deep.

The Rivers try to sweeten the salty seas;
Rain tries to satiate, earth's parched pleas.

Youth sprinkles with wrinkles in a wink;
Knowledge often ferries to a disaster's brink.

Woe! Here swiftest rarely wins the race;
Weaklings walkover with a beaming face.

The Godly dies young, leaving starving sons,
Lo! Liars live long, having endless fun.

Un tempting are my wives and virgins
Oh! Hopeless are my hope woven dreams

Happy are those, who have died and gone;
Blessed are souls that refused to be born

Verily, nothing is worthwhile or worthy to find;
Everything is futile, like chasing the wind.

    HI, I think we both drank
    From the self same source spring
    I wrote, 'A Pessimistic View of Life'
    In my college days decades two before
    But, refreshing still was it for me
    To feel the breeze brush my face again
    A remembrance of sorts it stirred
    To read it embellished with gold
    From the Quill in Hitesh's hand!
    Your's is the best as always,
    Dear friend, you are a master weaver
    With gold and silver thread
    You create a beautiful tapestry
    Which no one else can hold compare!
    Pls read my 'A Pessimistic View of Life' when time permits.

    The final four lines strike at the heart - a deep and powerful write. To every thing there is a reason, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.... (Report)Reply

    Simplicity and naturalness in these lines, reminding somehow of the song 'Dust in the wind' but with its own strong flavour. Thanks for sharing this powerful poem. (Report)Reply

    lovely poem! keep writing! no kings like him. he was a king as well as a prophet. he has widest kingdom ever, richest kingdom ever, and humblest heart. he rules the human being, the nature, the flora and fauna as well as the unseen creatures. I feel his most precious wisdom is to be humble to all people and to God. (Report)Reply

    This is an outstanding piece of poetry. First time reading a poem I started involutarily shouting Aha, Oho! Each line is a masterpiece. I have no words to describe the greatness of this poem. Certainly this poem will stand for ever as a great masterpiece..........My 10 are tooooooooooooooo small a gift to this great poem. I am selecting this as my favourite. What a day I found this super poem? ? ? ! ! ! ! ! (Report)Reply

    Happy are those, who have died and gone;
    Blessed are those who are never born.

    Great piece by you Dr Hitesh... I loved the diversity of your thought and the skill of rhyming is really wonderful... I tried to write something in rhyming about this poem, but couldn't... :)

    Superbly penned with rhyme, rhythm and music of its own.
    But for all these, life goes on,
    It's a puzzle unresolved
    It's not conclusions foregone.
