"My Legacy"

O master! Will, what thou craves for me!
The forsaken life is a praise for me

Tranquility resides in heart to see
The wonders in store thou hath for me

O fire! Retire! And Spare The Free!
Save if you would the flare for me

Endurance is my bride, sustenance the key
That is all perhaps there is to me

I am but a legend. There is no truth to me
And that indeed is my legacy

    Habib, this poem has good thoughts. Pleasant in reading. Has clarity of thoughts. However, there is room for editing. Perhaps avoiding repeatation of 'for me' in the second line of each verse will raise the standard of the poem. Keep writing. You have not posted a poem in the past four months. I urge you to read my poem My Departed Friends. -Mohammad Yamin
