Know Your Talent


You are mistaken if you think of your talent
You will be shown exit with bad comment
You may be forced to believe what has gone wrong
You can’t make people fool with your sweet words and song

They will move around for courageous stand
They may even closely follow and try to be friend
But they will forget and shunt you out for silly mistake
As they will see some thing big at risk or at stake

Whole life work may seem to be wasted
Your endurance and patience is tested
People may try to undermine for what you had done or said
They have mistrust in you and remain totally afraid

It is how you create trust wall
Respond to generous and emergency calls
Remain among people for their well being
They want ordinary man and not the king

Neither the high education comes to your rescue
Not your personal strength to supervise or over view
It is man to man contact and real deliverance
The things done with your efforts and in presence

How the flowers boom in beautiful garden?
How our eyes catch few of them then?
They have nothing for them except to praise
We all try to preserve them and beautifully raise

Some of the leaders come up like desert flowers
Come up for short span due to rain and showers
People know about their sudden appearance
But still remember their existence for fragrance

So people may remember well about sacrifice
They too will remember about fulfillment of promises
What they not forget is total turn about and deception
They may totally forbid them and rule them out of question

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
