Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

Before Taking a bold step!


Before taking a bold step
Take a good view of surroundings
Just after the step
If you realise you failed
Run as fast as you can!
Don't turn back.

Now with a boldness in your heart
Come to the same spot again,
When everything has calm down.

I am not telling one to be a coward
If you find yourself in front of angry bull
When no choice left, running is the best option.
As the words of love and peace cannot be ruminated by an angry bull!

Mirror can be protected before breaking,
When everything has cooled down,
Clean the cloudy mirror and ask them to look in it once again.
As we cannot clean their cloudy thoughts, but mirror in our hand we can clean....

    Wise words and to make us all realise that stepping back is okay. For often we look at things differently after the event (Report) Reply

    It is a nice poem though the reason why anger begins is because understanding lacks. (Report) Reply

    Yes, think twice before you act! Any rash step can lead one to his doom... Turning away from problems is no solution...Facing life boldly - there lies one's valour and victory! ! Great thoughts Geetha! (Report) Reply

    As the words of love and peace cannot be ruminated by an angry bull! .....a very correct and sound advice. Intellect always wins over physique. Last stanza is telling. Show the mirror and let the truth comes out. Beautiful poem :) (Report) Reply

    It so often happens in life, Geetha, ill-feelings are inflamed when it could be put out if one preferred to stay quiet.
    very pertinent observation. (Report) Reply

    Yes it is better to avoid confrontation unless it becomes unavoidable. It is always better to visit a rumbling volcano after it has erupted! A nice and thoughtful poem. (Report) Reply
