Why Does A Person Fear? - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Why does a person fear?
Why does he or she lose cheer?
How does a person achieve?
How does one get mischief?

What is the aim of a life?
Is the age sixty of a person ripe?
Why does a person miscarry?
Why does a person speculate fairy?

How to survive in this earth?
Can a person avoid rebirth?
Many questions arises in person's mind,
What are the solutions have to find?

A person fears for his or her unjust work,
Telling a lie leads him or her to murk.
Virtuous qualities like truth and nonviolence
Bring a person peace, bliss and silence.

Noble works, hard labour, bring ascent for person,
Meditation brings calmness and righteous action.
Aim of life should be to do good for nation,
And to do for soul will always be the notion.

Night comes after day and vice versa is sure,
Rebirth must come after death, action should be pure.
God can solve each problem if we shall do well,
Let's meditate him and save life from hood's tale.

    There are some very interesting questions in this poem that has the reader thinking....... I'm not sure I know all the answers though but every child asks, 'why am I here, where did I come from and where am I going'. I remember doing just that and in the world today we all have good reason to fear, sadly though, this fear is brought about by other human beings in a world that could be so peaceful and beautiful. Isn't that sad. (Report) Reply

    a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid......is fear......but how it can be averted is very philosophically crafted here.....
    Great piece with great imagination......Full marks

    No matter how good you are in your life, you still need help from others. No matter what issues you are trying to resolve, chances are someone else already had a similar issue before you. All of that has led me to conclude that there are some harsh truths that work for nearly everyone in their life. You know how you can hear about something many times in many different ways before it finally gets through to you? SIR Kumarmani feltful truths (POETRY) fall into that category of life lessons that will keep you awake and motivate you to make the difference. More power, Sir. 10 (Report) Reply

    If only we knew but it's our lot never to really know and die in that ignorance, hoping for something more, perhaps? For me, 'the more' is frightening but better than the void or nothingness so I lose both ways. As for miscarriage, the body has its own ways, it works without our consent, does what it likes with us. My old body has lost my singing voice, made my feet wobbly, given me back ache and neck ache with arthritis, none of which I wished for but here it is, mocking me. However I still have my sense of humour and my poetry and I love to read. Thank goodness for spectacles :) (Report) Reply

    Kumarmani, congratulations on being chosen for Poet/Poem of the Day! And your poem is a timely reminder of moral values in a world society that often disregards them. But you are speaking for THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD who know our goal of a time of TRUTH AND NON-VIOLENCE can only happen when people are imbued with PEACE, BLISS AND SILENCE. I am glad you voiced these universal hopes in terms of your Hindu beliefs because it shows that when people are faithful to their religious tradition the result is a higher harmony of
    all of us. At this mid-point of 2017 your poem summons us to make this year shine with goodness!
