A Poet Can Never Rest In Peace

Poem By Saurabh Som

A poet can never rest in peace
And forget all his miseries
No choice but to create along
With pearls of pain, a happy song
Even against his own free will
Or does he have a free will still?

A poet, a prisoner
The same forever
Born a weaver
of tales, believer
Of goodness in man
He concieves peace
But to Rest in it....
That, he never can....

Words of truth, and our most cherished Classic Poet's are paragons to your claim....as although they are long gone from this dimension...still they are being judged & their words misinterpreted by todays readers & literary critics. Very fine work here, Saurabh. ~ FjR ~
