Tiku akp


No need of a God


Bring me my coffin,
O’ Father,
Let me take my eternal rest;
Scalded in the fire
Of untold tribulations
Sorry! I am in haste.

My miserable soul rebels
Against your biased scheme;
Exhausted I feel and being in
The upstream all the time
I need to end my dream.

You always scuttled my moves
To be cared and loved;
My trust on you vanished
As you snatched away those
For whom my heart throbbed.

The gifts of misery and misfortune
You bestowed upon me;
Take back please, not to return
And set my soul free.

In the dark cell of moist earth
Dug just three feet deep;
Don’t ever come for once
To disturb my sleep;


What peace, what love
Can you to this world offer?
Let your blessings go to drain
When so many die of hunger.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
