O Lord, White As Jasmine

Poem By Akka Mahadevi

The days are never same
No one can predict or claim
If poverty was at the initial days
Gradually it may slip away

Nature has its rules
Only we need to be successful
An effort is very much necessary
Even if the situation may act as an adversary

Seasons make you like iron
Very tough and proven
Nothing can make it weak
The story may itself speak

Later on when you are at the peak
You feel everything fake
As if it was night dram
Real change or an anxious turn

Success days hard to digest
Poverty emerges on screen to test
Whether you are really a person
Who has worked so hard with reason?

This is how great businessmen smiles
When adverse situation strikes
He loses no temper and coolly accepts
The story is repeated and success is kept

I was stepping in to become young
I thought it is nice journey but too long
I am afraid and take care not to go wrong
I was expecting everything for song

All Dreams Not Come True ###309(In 500)

All dreams may not come true
All credits due may not accrue
But with true reflection in mind
Ideas newer and newer may emerge and find

A Place Called

place called “home” is to feel homely,
God’s creation standing by to look so lovely,
May be she is with all her elegance,
Everything for sure and no pretence,

Anywhere You Like

You suggested to me let us meet anywhere,

A place Where HE is not there,


Learned poets have said “beauty is to enjoy”
Like fresh flowers always give you joy
Don’t attempt to pluck or destroy
Not to play with it as simple toy

All Hopes Against Hope

All hopes dash against hopes
It is like tight walking on simple ropes
We may counter stiff resistance at high slope
Bonding may not be possible even if you elope
