>> too many fruits could leave you broken


The fruits hanging from the branches

Of your tree, evoke in my heart an emotion

People With contempt call it jealousy

And I too wished to have some

Exactly like that of you



I grew older; one by one they stuck to me

And I bear a lot of them

Like the followers of you of face book follow you

And wait for every status you update

Or the little piece of your mind you post

Like a thirsty bird waiting for a drop of rain

In the extreme summer of June/July

And you enjoy this to the lees

like a celebrity, but you are wrong

And I am too frighten as too many fruits

Could harm a branch

Unable to bear I will be left broken.



If I am right then the story would end

Discussing your down fall

As a Buddha never follows another Buddha

They vie to surpass each other

The animosity between them to do excellence is so strong

That they do not hold back even to kill

Really, really I am too frighten.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
