Value Your Pen Poem by Dr Dillip K Swain

Value Your Pen

Rating: 4.5

In this transient world
life is like a tender
flimsy and brittle leaf
which can be blown away
unusually and unexpectedly

Nothing in this life
is permanent,
nothing you can hold
with you forever!

Your beloved parents,
your lovely kids,
your better half,
may not stay with you
to give you company
throughout the journey
of your life!

There is no guarantee
that you can maintain
good relationship
with a human being
whom you consider
as your best friend!

Your best friend
may someday
be turned into foe,

Make your pen
your best friend,
it will never betray you!

Love people,
places, friends,
relatives, your lover
and your better half
but value your pen the most!

Everyone may leave you
but your pen will
always be with you
till the last breath!

Your pen can be
Your best companion
In the later part of your life!
