Me and poetry


To read to ponder over I write
Applaud or abhor in your hands
Popular or perennial time only decides
Encouraging words if any enthuse my moods

Amazing are the talents adoring here
Awestruck I am at the flow of their excellence
Pursuit of knowledge propelled from here
Generations to come shall cherish these writings

A name among the famed
A desire to be among exalted
A pride derived from fearless writes
Nothing unusual but natural for any poet
