Choose your Choir! Poem by Suman Kumar Das


Few people keep holding
Their endeavour throughout life
With a vision to do different
In favour of others.

Some people keep searching
Their place in other’s world.
May raise many Censure
To hide own inability.

Most people keep living
Their dreamless days
Think all creations are crap
Never express self-existence.

Now choice is yours.
Choose your Choir!

    Beautiful write we are all different and learn to live sometimes by other peoples rules, instead of having self belief to dream and make our dreams possible. To be good to people is to enrich our souls and to embrace our own self worth.

    Hi Sumar, good but could be polished. The 2nd stanza needs more clarity..ie: world could maybe read worlds. A dash after worlds instead of a period. Should Censure' not read censure [no cap on 'c']? In the third stanza a dash after the word days? These are mainly grammar issues. The reader needs as clear a message as possible so as not to be distracted from the meaning you wish to convey. Bottom line, good work - keep it up! (Report) Reply

    We are the ones to choose our own choir! Cherish beautiful dreams and work to realize them. We cannot expect things to be placed before us in a platter! Our existence must be felt by others through our good actions! Inspiring write, Suman! !
