The Goal

The  Goal short poem

Photo by Anne Worner

Your day starts with the Sunrise-
Your day ends with the Sunset.
Your dreams and hopes start by birth,
And end in the grave yard.
Days, Weeks, Months and Years-
Pass swiftly- swiftly -by
Your dreams and hopes increase day by day,
Until your last breath.
Try to understand –
Life is full of challenges.
Accept it as you can,
Better not to feel jealous of others.
Let them do what they can.
Try to learn to live before you die.
Try to find the truth that lies ‘within the lie’

I was working as the head teacher of a high school for many years.I have written many poems in English, Urdu and Malayalam. But i never had the confidence to bring it to the public .Better to say, i never tried for it due to lack of confidence.Now i got a platform to bring myself forward.Thanks to the editorial board of high on poems.I enjoy reading and writing.

So true right mam? Goals are ours ..the path is ours..people who come and go from our life are just guides..And to leave a mark even after death is something that we should look for..Loved it mam…

Do something what you love…..if you do not know what you really love……….discover it……spend time with your feelings…you will get an answer……….do what you can to begin with……slowly improve on it….don’t set your goals depending on what others tell you…don’t copy what others do because every soul has got different soul-path .

A Silence On The Night.

A silence on the night. The day fluttered quietly in whisper soft resonance, So many colours slowly dying Like confetti in the rain, And echoes touched each other, a reunion of themselves, As though they were astounded At their resonating
