Rookie (16 Nov 1953 / Jammu)

Alone


In a room filled with people
I am alone
I do not belong
They sing not my song
My thoughts
They wander
Over soaring heights
Beautiful flights
Meaningful
Divine
I long for the company of those
Who are mine
Here, in a crowd
I am alone
What do I know
Of meaningless chatter
Polite talk
While sizing each other up
Calculating
Deducing
Planning
Mani pulating
For a selfish means
I want to be with people
I love and admire
Not in a dark dirty mire
Filled with selfish and
Lost souls
That is why
In a room full of such people
I am alone

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

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.
