In Our World.


In our world
between the twinkle of an eye
things change at an alarming rate
policies, laws, people and life in a whole.

We hope for the best
but even when work should determine
we get what our labor overthrows
and our hearts rejoice.

In our world
nature's gone around the clock
and we hope for the best
we can get off it.

Gadgets command respect,
dignity is put to bed
and though appearance matter
we are ruled via sentiments

In our world
being humble is being inferior
we get missing in our society.
When our honesty is exhibited
we are tagged fools by some
but in all, our world means a lot to us
even when it request so much we can give.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
