Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Duty First


And what is a duty
To serve others
Is primary.

See the tree
See the water and the air
See the sun and the moon
O men, your life
If you claim yours
Is not true.

Listen the cuckoo
And go on your way
Duty is
Waiting for you.

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
