Coward

Poem By Rini Shibu

Why this veil, show your face
Don't hide behind the window pane
Come face to face then you will win
Or people will say you are insane
Don't throw arrows from behind
What you gain to see them bleed
Don't shed blood of innocents
When the war is with someone else
What do you gain being a coward
Don't say that you are a friend
With your smile don't kill
Do something worth for a thrill

Comments about Coward

A thoughful poem thanks for sharing.
Cowards come in many forms. Some weak by disposition. Others are weak by taking advantage of others through power and deception. The first may be forgiven and pitied but those in the latter must be unmasked and named for what they and their crimes are.....bravo Rini, well done!
Don't shed blood of innocents When the war is with someone else What do you gain being a coward.. problems of sincerity and hiding behind a veil in relationships.. thank u dear poetess. tony

Loneliness

When you are in the midst of darkness
Where loneliness engulfs your soul
Twinges of hopelessness felt
Chirping sound of crickets heard

Galaxy Of Poetry

On that dark night when I was not able to sleep
When I wanted to escape from this earth
to a different galaxy..  I flew high and landed in this galaxy of poetry
Where I am happy and more satisfied than ever before

Vicarious Pleasure

Saplings and trees so wild and mysterious
You took me to the magical woods
Twisted roots and mossy rocks
Enchanted my imagination

I am confused really confused
My mind says to fight for truth
And Heart says to live in harmony
The Mind sets boundaries and limitations

Garden Of Love

Soul in the garden of love
It's like paradise on earth
