Things, I Have To Do - Poem by sarwar chowdhury

I have two legs
they are good enough to walk
The people, who loves me, know too,
I can walk miles together
but the day, the sea asked me-
'why you are not walking
on the ways of the earth? '

I answered-
'it is not possible at all
The streets are captured
by fierce creatures
I need fly as birds
My thoughts has been flying
since childhood'

The sea smiled
and told-
'The sky is not free from disturbances
there are falcons and other antagonism.
Let your thoughts fly..
the roads are given to you
You must walk, You must fight with..
You have to clear yourself the roads'

'The sky is not free-'
It is true
I remember
my desires, my thoughts were attacked by.

    very great i am reading i forgot the dialog was written by same if i am listening to some poetic conversation between you and the sea and begun to think both sides...then i realized it's your piece successfully delivered great thoughts to us about the reality of gain courage on our everyday life...
    which is better to fly or to walk? whatever we will do...we cant escape from hindrances and trials...the road is not safe so with the sky....very true to what is happening now... but we have to go on....fight on what is right....
    i love this write and love to read it again and again....amusing and thoughts provoking....10++++ and my vote....
