A Body In Empty Shell

I want to keep my head down,
To utter my prayer for us.
Let, fill us with pure light,
Let us be as sober as grass.

Nice one, dear Nilakshi Das, a form of spirituality and the need for awareness of the left-behind traces or footprints.

spiritual and demanding.....the way is shown in no uncertain terms....the path to eternity, the path to nirvana.... prophetic and well written liked it cheers

What's the use of this life, If innocence does fail? Will we have fun and frolic, With a body with empty shell? ........... Beautiful verse :)

Spiritually vacant body, you mean to say, I think.

Our lives without footprints are miserable. Man's quest is to make impact. This tallies with my poem: I Want To Be A Life Line
It is still a shell precious when poetic exuberance and the emptiness can be nostalgic for ever.

I liked this, don`t understand the review from Romeo Vishal, who can`t be bothered to write decent English and seems to deduce a meaning from your poem that is not there...If you have some kind of problem, get it fixed - you don`t have to try and sort it out here, I thought this site is about literature, not about social networks.....
