Treasure Island

Kumud Ranjan

(8th July / India)

A premature death

What he wishes for when he enters the world
Of a loving mother who always cares of him
What he hopes of when he is mischievous
His mother notices it and fills with a gleam

he starts going to school, feels a bit scared
an imprisonment to him but he can’t dare
Then he wishes of a good friend to accompany
One who can believe him, who keeps his privacy

Now he is a juvenile feeling free from barriers
Thinks he knows everything pretending to be serious
What he misses is a good friend to walk with him
One whom he can trust heartily, not a dubious

He turns to a young chap, now responsible
Toils for his career and knows to tackle hurdle
Feels the world is not coping with him properly
Has he expectations unlimited still unattended

Days and nights he works for them being breathless
His dreams make him to shatter on floor sometime
And he yells in a closed room on himself
Either collapsed or at the verge of breakdown

He feels that here his life come to an end
A premature, unwanted striven death
Is waiting for him at the age of thirty merely
With a smile in disguise he takes his last breath

    first word that comes to mind is wow. what a great poem that covers the life of a man from innocence to childhood to young adult to young man to ->

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
