A Body In Empty Shell


I want to keep my head down,
To utter my prayer for us.
Let, fill us with pure light,
Let us be as sober as grass.
The open air, the crystal mind,
The leaves of grass, the dew
From the heaven, the azure sky,
All we need, to worship you!
What's the use of this life,
If innocence does fail?
Will we have fun and frolic,
With a body in empty shell?
We have come to leave footprints,
On the way we always walk.
So that people may follow us,
Our works and our given track!

    Our lives without footprints are miserable. Man's quest is to make impact. This tallies with my poem: I Want To Be A Life Line (Report) Reply

    I liked this, don`t understand the review from Romeo Vishal, who can`t be bothered to write decent English and seems to deduce a meaning from your poem that is not there...If you have some kind of problem, get it fixed - you
    don`t have to try and sort it out here, I thought this site is about literature, not about social networks..... (Report) Reply

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
