Unremovable - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

Try harder my dear
With your capable hands of a rake,
But you can't remove
The honey-white roots of grasses
From this breakable skin of brown ground.
Here in my body of flesh and blood
A heart is resting
Under a soiled layer like the surface of earth.
An invisible seed of love
Is planted there
With the determination of eternity,
That can never be scraped up
By the unkind hands of resentment.

    The philosophy of life is well depicted in your Unremovable poem, we are deeply attached to earth and its material things and these two are inseparable till we take last breath....Awesome...10++++ (Report) Reply

    With god sent determination, when love is germinated, it blooms to its capacity in the heart. The imagery is sweet and the narrative is emotional. Thanks. I quote some exceptional lines:
    That can never be scraped up
    By the unkind hands of resentment.

    Great poem...What seems to be a love poem, is about self-respect and love beyond any narrow pursuit. This is the finest kind of love poem. A great work. (Report) Reply
