Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla


Migration


When hardships faced
At the present location
Are totally unbearable
One reviews the situation.

One considers if it's worth
To stick to the current position
Or move away to a different
Place to pursue something.

Migration occurs naturally
Birds and animals migrate
As weather changes with seasons
And food becomes scarce.

Prevailing conditions of drought
Or man created wars force
People to move to far off lands
Nothing else'll be worse they think.

Migration's hard to tackle
We must establish peace
Distribution of resources must
Be addressed properly at every stage.

    Leaving one's familiar surroundings is often painful... Both animals and birds migrate mostly under forced circumstances... In rare cases it can be impelled by the need for a change for the better...! A fair write! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
