Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

If not for humanity


We are on rampage
Not able to mange
Our animal like hunger
Which emanates from anger?

Think of simple future
We are running out time for sure
The poor children are in streets
Need out hands to greet

They want warmth
Besides nourishment and health
With good care and education
To build healthy and strong nation

We hear about rape commitment
It is condemnable punishment
No law deters and they are subjected
To cruel exposure when others inhumanly act

Let us make it punishable crime
Child abuse is real shame
When we talk of nation
Such abuse should not be irrational

Let us preserve our wealth
Child is very important with health
If we want nation to remain powerful
Their life should be made purposeful

Some of the nations are still under poverty line
They live under pathetic condition
They are molested, abused and thrown
It is weakness of our own

No amount of fight may succeed
But fight and sacrifice is must indeed
Let wealthy nations adopt country in question
If not for humanity sake but peaceful relation

    Great message in well chosen words.

    I enjoyed this poem. It has good imagery and cadence. It is well thought out and it convays a good message. Do you have an averion to usang the word, a and an in your poems? they would flow so much better. Examples are line one, We are on rampage, instead, We are on a rampage.2nd stanaza line one is, Think of simple future, instead of Think of a simple future. Second line second stanza, we are running out time for sure, instead We are running out of time for sure. Is it a langue issue or a choice? Consider it. Your friend Steven.

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,
