Shah Jehan Ashrafi


Guilt


Guilt is veiled in weak souls
The souls that do not answer to conscience's calls
Everyday to purify ourselves we do pine
Wrapped deep inside us guilt is repentance divine
Remorse is a stream which has to keep flowing
This is the only valley where sins keep bowing
Arrogance, jealousy and cruelty are all doomed
Once this purity in one's heart is groomed
A medley of virtues sleeps in guilt's lap
It is the unique force which gives the evil a slap
Let us all ask from god to be equipped with guilt
A gift which will protect us as a convenient quilt
A man keeps erring only till this divine light strikes
He reaches new heights just like when he hikes
Guilt is as if the blind being blessed with a pair of eyes
It is in itself a priceless gift received as a prize!

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
