A Cup of Poetry


Hey, the Craven!
strolling like a rolling stone
running behind to make money
by foul and fair
giving the name of wiseness
lurking for lust
have made this world
worst than hell
spreading hatredness
divided the mankind
into race and religion
begone from my sight.

Let me enjoy the cup of poetry
am asking the Almighty
to pour more and more poems
in the cup of my poetry
where the moon will reflect
And I'll kiss the moon
through cup of my poetry
to make me realise
the coldness of her breath
where stars will assemble
to enlighten my soul.

I'll pray my master
to fill with His entire creation
when I'd be lost
forgetting all delusion of life.

    I enjoyed the rhythm of your poem along with it's beautiful message.
    Our poems are held in a cup, their enchanting aromas enticing people the world over,
    as they drink their morning cups in contemplative thoughts while continually writing
    more poetry. Thank you for sharing, RoseAnn (Report) Reply
