Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


Where the mind is without worries!


Will there ever be times where the hostilities among people stand perished?
Will there ever be times where peace reigns all the places?
Will there ever be times where countries co-exist in harmony?
Will there ever be times where fanatics meet their own funeral?
Will there ever be times when brotherhood prevails upon hatred?
Will there ever be times where differences are buried under welfare of all?
Will there ever be times where arms and missiles vanish for ever?
Will there ever be times where minds bind with love and affection?
Will there ever be times where commons break the shackles of ignorance?
Will there ever be times where rulers are free from greed and deceit?
Will there ever be times where no one is deprived of food and shelter?
Will there ever be times where comforts are not cornered by a few?
Will there ever be times where every human is literate and wise?
Oh! God! guide us to such a place where we can rest in peace!
Oh! God! allow such times at least for the generations to come!

The recent massacre of Indian soldiers and the general trend of hostilities troubled me a lot. Hence this hopeful prayer!

    This poem reminds of Rabindranath Tagore's poem 'Where the mind is without fear' which you can read at PH. Nice questions. We need to create such atmosphere. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
