Turnabout Poem by Obinna Kenechukwu Eruchie


Rating: 4.8

Have eyed dire a life packed with storms.
Wildly, money whisked in air-vast sums,
Pains my home with intense heart drums.

All but tears, my wife flooding alone.
To my kids, I’m of tramp-trash tone.
Love to light them ought to be shown.

To discard not my heart-dear ones,
Must stamp a stop to gambling runs,
Must exit out those gulping funs.

Life adrift I have dwelled, I burn.
To a life spring-solaced, I turn.
Sun-living with my home, I earn.

after all those stormy experience in life, you realized to turn about, to get back and start all over again and this time it has to be good. Nice and excellent write, I like it.

God bless....an excellent poem...a Star and a 10 +++++++++

Apoet Bangla (12/28/2009 11: 33: 00 PM) sun-living with my home, I earn. yes, this smart utterance we need every sphere of life today. it proves poetry is the man-made art. reality dominates the emotions but yet its aesthetical height is so tall perhaps touches the mysterious imaginative world of life-beyond. want your more writing so smart and so singular dear poet and remember always 'Sun lives with your Home, You earn'.

Sometimes we get carried away by little bit impulsive activities at the expense of some family responsibilities at times, but ultimately get back to our realization and amend the things for the better.The poem is a good reflection of realization and family devotion.Very nice.
