Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla


Free from Malice


Every person
Man or woman
Needs to have
Safety, both
Physical and mental
Any time
Any where
Under all
Conditions and
Circumstances
Let human be never
Enemy to human
Let humanity
Prevail.

Walking along
A dark street
You afraid
Of the other
And the other
Scared of you
A tension
Building up
Can we not
Avoid this?

News people
Report
Scary events
To warn us,
In turn they fill
Weak hearts
With more scare
Also teaching
New tricks
To criminals
Providing details
Of weaknesses
Of the ordinary.

Let criminals
Be found
And duly punished
Let steps
Be taken
To prevent them
From committing
Another crime.

In simple
Terms,
We look for
A society
Free from
All malice
A world full of
Goodwill to all.

    A great poem with a great message. But how far and to what extend, it can be realized is ever a doubtful matter! Any way voicing our wish will help many to wish in the same manner... Gradually such thoughts will leave a positive impact at least in the air! ! (Report) Reply

    With a concerted effort it is possible to be done. But we often ignore the need for cleansing our mind and just go ahead with regular bath and face wash alone... Sir, you have not read my last few writes. If time permits please do read them. (Report) Reply

    the last stanza is a very rewarding thought. If this could be this world would be do much better off. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
