Hard To Follow


It is hard to follow
Than conscious to allow
For correctness in life
It is really sharp edge of knife

We are all knee deep
Can not always keep
To the high ideals
As life wants act real

We are committed to treachery
As that is felt necessary
you find no way out
You are forced to take different route

It is difficult to remain as simple man
People may treat you as foolish human
Not worth for being capable in their domain
Where as honest man always pays with pain

“You should do this and avoid this”
Many people rush with words of promise
In actual time they desert and keep away
They have their own thinking and ways

So to say “It is easier to say than done “
All the words are hollow and with the winds gone
We must follow own instinct and excel
That shall help to come out with success story tot ell

    Nur Meiyati Nice poem. You have proved to be a simple man without any effort as that is you. You are one of few men I can always trust because you are a simple man....meaning easy to be trusted.

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,
