Work For The Day

Work For The Day short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

Work for your day – Satisfaction is what you ultimately crave.
Die each day, do you wish to celebrate THE day?
Laugh off every sting that penetrates.
Deep inside it recovers and sprouts the ache.
Laugh at the moment, for you are the one who foresees your day.
Little seed of wisdom shall be – all grown – on THE day;
With every ounce of endeavour candidly poured TODAY.
Effort in efforts, nothing goes in vain.
Such gain is worth all the pain.

Doom’s Day

Doom’s Day short poem

The rapture was on prowl to get the believers. You knew what you should not have known about the baby blue. Aphasia, experiences an impulsive violence, beyond the dead. Bionic hands to capture the moment of swapping uremia with swastika.
