Hi, Scholar


You objected my language
I object not
you started to analyse theories
I object not
long dialogues hour long you delivered
to show your command on the art of poetry
I listened with silence
when you came to know my understanding
I simply told
'You wanted to be a poet
tragically become a scholar'!

    Well written and very deep anticipation of the estimates of a scholar...All scholars though like poets have something in common.They die with time and are remembered after demise with dates and the cream of achievements.Rich becomes richer doing business on a scholars contribution.Politicians live on goons and ruffians and terrorists or crusaders or soldiers.They are also scholars.But we will still live in a world not appropriate for humans.We will pay the films artificial with its actors for our tears or smiles to share with others at the cost of our hard-works and its our money grossing box offices everytime.Show world plays with our emotions coz reality bites...a nice poem Sir (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
