Somanathan Iyer


Don't sympathise


I am not a saint
To renounce the life
I have my desires
That seldom to realize

I am like any one
With lot of hopes
Unlike every one
I dream t them wrong

Sympathy from others
I seldom expect
Deprived chances
I want them back

Life is short
All know well
Luck is selective
Life only tells

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
