A Saint In The Making


Keep the mind without strains
Keep the heart without stains
Easy to say things like above
Strain a lot to conceal the stains

Haunts the worries when plans are dented
Hunt gets halted when efforts remain punctured
Standing at the cross roads with manipulated sign boards
Perils of pessimism drowning the signs of optimism

Aspired are some but misfired are many
Perspire a lot, won’t get things if not in the slot
Despaired we are when forced to relish the unwanted
Wanted are just the hopes unwanted are realities to cope with!

Confronted with adversities life remains always a mystery
Repeated adversities relegate you to the brink of sublimity
Soured grapes are all that you craved for, that remained always evasive
Renounce the wants! denounce the world! You are a saint!

    Sorry I beg to disagree. I believe if you want to be a saint, stay in the world and love its up s and downs.

    This writing has a lot of pith in it though and very thoughtful.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
