A poet's duty
Sondering mind which realises the agony of every heart,
this is how the journey of a poet starts.
Praise and prejudice he receives all,
one who rises is bound to fall.
For telling the truth and being a sleuth,
the poet is refrained.
His veracious poetries are simply disdained.
Using his pen like a sword he slashes through the society to know it all,
the ugly truth makes his body shiver,
his candour heart starts to quiver.
A poet is a mirror of the society ,
who portrays the real picture with propriety.
He writes what he feels,
he writes what he sees.
He has seen love blossoming in the middle of a war.
He has seen treachery in a family of four.
He has seen the fear in the eyes of a prey when the lion roars.
The duty of a poet is to write and write with all his might.
To write about war and forget love,
is like describing the colour white without mentioning dove.
Sorrows ,misery and happiness are the stanzas of the same poem,
look around my dear friend, you will find a poet in every home.
