Thoughts Whispered Into Air - Poem by Valsa George

As days depart silent
When this clown ends her show
Some will applaud and some will sneer
No more concerned-though I know
I will not be in everyone's good books
I strive to maintain an equipoise
Of a dispassionate acceptance

When my funeral bells chime
And their notes resonate
In the valley of melancholy
When memories of me fade in every heart
Like the previous night's dream
I hope to leave behind
One single message:

‘Replace your anger by forgiveness
Drown your greed in founts of compassion
Discard the lethal weapons of jealousy and animosity
Draw everyone into the magic circle of your love'

We came into this Earth
Swimming in the placental river of a mother
Nourished by her love,
Or someone else's care,
We grew big enough
To stand on our own feet
On the stilts of others' support
We stand tall, taller than we are

So see each one as protective armor
A co traveller, a shoulder to lean on
And never an adversary
To be defeated or demolished!

Topic(s) of this poem: brotherhood, death, love and friendship

    I am deeply touched by this poem of brotherhood and friendship. Reading this poem, I am inspired to expand my 'circle of love'. Thank you Valsa, I am convinced that poems can be very motivating to make us better human beings. Your poem reached out to me to make my day today.
    'So see each one as protective armor
    A co traveller, a shoulder to lean on
    And never an adversary
    To be defeated or demolished! ' - Indeed so, let's try!

    Thank you for your beautiful comment. Sorry for the late response! The state of Kerala which is my home state is now affected by the worst floods and most of the people are affected by it. We had no power and internet for the last four days. Now the electricity is reinstated and I could access the internet only today!

    Hi, Valsa! Amen to your message—a worthy one, and one like what I reach for. I like “the placental river of a mother”—the image and the liquid sound of it. You’ve had recent cause to think on your mortality—which is good for reflection and ordering priorities. Hoping this finds you well. May love fill and preserve us. -Glen (Report)Reply

    ''So see each one as protective armor
    A co traveller, a shoulder to lean on
    And never an adversary
    To be defeated or demolished! '' - united we stand; divided we fall.
    Profound and wise, your words to humanity. A great poem, poetically written.

    'Replace your anger by forgiveness
    Drown your greed in founts of compassion
    Discard the lethal weapons of jealousy and animosity
    Draw everyone into the magic circle of your love'.........touching expression with nice theme. There is a saying..'A heart can't be won by the point of a sword.' We can't solve anger or problems by force but we can solve these by love easily. This is a beautiful poem on love and friendship having an intensive inscription.10
