Treasure Island

Challenging Cracks!


Paths are diverting!
Surprisingly end of one path is the beginning of new path.

Yes, you are right, I am mere a light,
Just removed the darkness inside the earthenware vessel
But today cracks shook the walls of vessel.
It's sad the prolonged vessel going to be shattered.
Well it was never in my hand
As the time and climate withered it away.
None could save it from crashing.

But today, I am going to read this in other way...

Today cracks started appearing
Light is that driving force which will break the vessel of darkness,
to spread the light everywhere.

Your challenging words are those driving force behind to move forward.

A new path is coming my way
I can see through the cracks of earthen vessel
Which is going to break from all sides.
May be my cloudy thoughts are going to break
And showing me clear way to look ahead.
Unexpectedly I came across this path
Today, I am surprised to see there is a way through a tinted hole.
Not sure is this path long or short?
Through my experience, I am going to crack it.
I have to move.
I will not regret if I fail
Nothing can be worst ever than today.
I will not regret to fall into dust.

I am moving ahead.
I want to rise to the star
From this earth to the star
To prove myself
That I ever existed
If I touch star
And never return back
I won't regret
As I made up my mind to move,
To prove I ever existed
Though you may or may not see
But many will witness this star
Rising for at least once and
falling to the dust!

    Today cracks started appearing
    Light is that driving force which will break the vessel of darkness,
    to spread the light everywhere... nice lines

    if path was straight
    what is there to fight?
    life is zigzag way
    only sight should not be lost in any way (Report) Reply

    I agree with you on this. I am reminded of the old saying, ' every cloud has a silver lining.' Here, in this poem, the cracks let in light into the dark interiors of the earthenware. Similarly, when we crack under certain hostile circumstances we should not lose heart but allow the light of wisdom enter us. Beautiful write. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
