Partition


Partition is not conclusive
And I am unable to decide
Which part is yours
And which is mine.

Is there any difference
Between foot and palm
Between men and women
Between sea and sky.

Utter not any word
It will go against you.

Go and stay there enjoying full
There it is yours.
It is not divisible
And you are within it.

    A good poem. The partition depends on the way one takes it, It can be splitting up of a nation to form two, it can be the splitting up of a couple to go their separate ways. You have expressed yourself well. A thought provoking poem indeed. (Report) Reply

    Very thought-provoking write on boundaries of expression. Freedom to speak and write is inherent human right, it is the expression of himself and that which makes him alive and meaningful as a human being. Error is common to man, as they say: To err is human, to forgive is divine. When we prevent others to speak out their views because of certain boundaries such as gender, status, or intellectual capacity, then we shackle their humanity and stifle their existence. To be free is to truly live. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
