Treasure Island

Jinal Oswal


A heart turns to a stone

A mother starts hating her child
A father sends his son to exile
A flowers is crushed by someone
A wife lives a life like that of a nun
A laborer life is in despair
A doctor runs a hospital which cannot be repaired
A baby is all alone at two
A tree is still growing at twenty-two
All these things a are a matter of pride
Before that, does your heart listen to those innocent cries? ?

    May few drops of innocent tears pour the sympathy to all listeners...and
    A mother never hates her child but sometimes need to get strict just to teach them
    A father also never do bad things for his son unless it just to let him see something
    A flowers is crushed by someone but it cant stop from flower to bud new again
    A wife lives a life like that of a nun but her husband maybe act like priest..but normal family
    A laborer life is in despair...because money? but rich man is despair because enemy?
    A doctor runs a hospital which cannot be repaired but as long as there is a patient it worth to run...and government if they care about their citizen then doctor can smiley care for them...
    A baby is all alone at two but at two and half is no longer alone...crying is ringing a bell
    A tree is still growing at twenty-two...flowering and fruiting for all loyal living with them too....yes we listen to their cry and we proud that we all worth for any smile_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
