Let Service Spill Out


The saying goes
Life's short
Like a bubble
Of water...

All passions
And craving
For wealth
Won't last long,
Will come to
A dead end
Sooner than
One thinks.

Deep inside
Compassion's
Dormant
While
Mat erial world
Dominated
All else.

Let the hidden
Feelings
Flow out
Let some service
To humanity
Spill out.

    How would you propose these acts of humanity to begin and spread across the masses? We 'poets' are good at mind and propose and propose though our lives held up in the mundane and routine tracks never make a leap in this direction. As for me, other than giving alms to the beggars or distributing a few fruits/food packets at an orphanage true service to humanity in the real or better sense have never been possible. I hope you will add a note later as to how we may begin to spill it more effectively Chandruptla sir. (Report) Reply

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
