Tirupathi Chandrupatla


Last Act


You're always remembered
By the last act of yours
Try your best to make
Every action a good one.

If last act was bad
You'll be branded as so
Don't let things slip
Keep yourself in control.

People eagerly watch
A new movie released
Worth of old newspaper
Is only its paper value.

Readers keep looking
For the next poem you write
Strive to deliver one
That'll have a lasting value.

    Every act we do is watched, that's why we should
    always make them good ones. A great poem. (Report) Reply

    Very true Tirupathi, I have always said that one is only as good as their last mistake. We are usually remembered for the errors we make rather than for the good things we do. Well written. (Report) Reply

    The difference between old and new is a burning question for these days. We can not stop the new comer but we exclusively the creative persons have to take care so that there is no reverse effect on our society. The coming generation shall have to pay the value for our present deeds. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
