Remember, There Were Tough Times


How unweary minded are
the souls of men?
when miles and history bath
their hearts with photographs
of then and then...
and only their selfish hearts have
paid a dumb ears.

Remember, though now wear up
with well dressed appearance,
And the heart beats harder in a
method,
Though the tooth bites with a style...
and the mood of the body have
changed...
It is obvious that the dry season
have wore away.

A good breath in the lung,
A kaleidoscopic release of atoms
of joy on the face,
Earthquakes have gone for
no come back,
Now on a free world free
from detests.

But all along on the new drive,
Remember, re-remember! ....
there were tough times.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
