Target - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

A soldier has target at fierce foe,
An angry man aims at sharp toe.

Devotees have target to meet God,
Their children aim at prayer and nod.

Students have target at achieving goal,
Politicians aim at success in each poll.

Doctors target to get more patients,
Mother aims at children to be patient.

Poet, poetess target to be popular poet,
Damsel aims at having attractive pot.

Carnivorous animals target at prey,
Divine family targets peace by pray.

And what is the target in your mind?
Is it peace, noble, sacrifice or kind?

Topic(s) of this poem: life, spiritual

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Toe – lower end or tip of an implement, Patient – person having medical treatment, Patient – having or showing patience

    xNice word play, a joy to read, loved also the food for thought. It makes us ask, do I have a target, how could it be best described?

    Many targets are subliminal, aimed at with subconscious or societally mandated weapons. But first target must be noble, for the benefit of fellow men (Report) Reply

    Profound indeed,
    The poet has depicted the targets of the various persons and creatures,
    and at the end portrayes the true, virtuous target of humans.
    A lovely poem indeed, Loved reading it, Added to my poem list..........10

    Yes, we all have different targets in our life. but the ultimate target of each man should be achieving the crown of being a real human being by spreading peace and kindness for others.
    great write with a philosophical ending. liked it so much. thank you.

    What ever each one aims at, real target is one's own satisfaction, at the expense of anything under the sun, may be. Inspiring poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Everybody aims for his or her target as a matter of daily routine and practice. But the ultimate aim for all human activity is to attain peace in life as you have rightly pointed out:
    Divine family targets peace by pray.
