Our World


Where we live?

We are living in a mysterious world

a world we do not know much about

How did this world exist?

When it was born?

How we came into being?

When we came into being?

What the future lay for us?

Does this world love us?

in what way?

How a world of pure matter

can show any love to us?

A world of no biological form

A world of oceans, heaven and land

no heart, no brain, no comprehension

Does this world sometimes hurt us?

Lightings and hurricanes

floodings and quakes

Famine and hunger

A world of beauty that lure us

Sunshine and gardens

and other times

an angry world

of dark skies, thunders and pouring rain

Oh this world we live in

Do we have to know you?

to understand you and enjoy our lives

or to shed a tear or two and keep going?

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
