Naseeru Taneemu Annuree


Envy Is like a wildfire
Whose consequence is so dire
It flung us into the mire
Which results in quagmire
Better we look for good and aspire
Whose sweet fruits hardly expire
Envy is from the devil we hire
Thought it looked like a fine attire
It shouldn't be the thing we desire
But to help and be helped is require
Where peace and progress can be acquire
And brotherhood spirit be inspire
Envy only move us closer to hellfire
A step too dangerous to bemire
No! It is not a satire
From envy we must retire
Before peace and progress be acquire
Envy from our heart we should perspire
And stand strong before the vampire
With the help of God to backfire
A battle with no ceasefire
Untill peace and progress re-acquire
And brotherhood spirit re-inspire...

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
