Why I desire


Why I desired to be poet?
By nature I was quiet
Shy and completely unspoken
Always remained assertive but shaken

I needed no protection
Neither any god father to work on
Nor any guide to provide some material
It was to come from environment as natural

There are hurdles on the way
So many poets may try to away
Many may encourage and give valuable feed
But I have hidden desire or you can call it as greed

I want to be known worldwide
But face many nations with so much divide
Religion draws special attention
By mistakes also you should never mention

We are product of free nations
Liberty and freedom is main backbone for relation
We raise voice wherever we witness atrocities
Or find some kind of apartheid or disparities

Yet it is nice to hold pen
Write worthwhile for people then
Readers might come in favor or go against
But I have an urge to gain the trust

I wrote first with cuckoo’s voice
It was felt sweet with full of promises
We find lovely bird early in the morning
I found recognition for it in the evening

Well, good beginning is half work done
I shall write more on past that has gone
It may help to build historical opinion
Sometimes for the nations to form union

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
