In Life Time


In life time I may have chance
To saw the seeds in earth at once
It is of paramount importance
If I am lucky to witness in life’s presence

What will be my reaction?
If school built with my donation
Turns out to be product of mafia people
Cause harm to society in general

What shall be my feeling?
If temple built by me has no offerings
Either from disciples or from followers
How come plant proves barren even after rainy showers?

Yes it seems bad and heart breaking
When no one reads or speaking
A word in favor or disfavor
It hurts pride and self honor

Gesture has to be met with by gesture
That is main motive and corner stone for future
This may be the stark reality
But it all happens while dealing with humanity

So many noble words are said
Foundation stone is also laid
It is for the welfare and common use
It may cause little pain if misused

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
