Future

Poem By Jaya Jha

When the present seems too good to be true
Then I do not want to know the future.
What goes up, must come down - so I know
I will lose, sooner or later, my treasure.

What an ingratitude it must sound to the fate
That has given me the present bliss
But if I know the future, the pleasure
I can have today, I will surely miss.

Yes, so let me be blind and conceited
And a short-sighted fool, if you want.
But this moment of peace and content
You must, to me, unconditionally grant.

When the same old world glows all anew,
Then the future I do not want to know.
Things can't be so bright and beautiful for ever
The moments that matter, let me not throw.

She Can Not Love Them

They love her from far
'Oh! That must be so pure'
But what is it they love so
Is what she is not so sure.

Moments That Matter

Give me a few days
For just myself, my own self.
Away from the world, which
I would leave, if I could help.

A Word Of Praise

A word of praise
Use once
And see the Change
It can bring about

That Has Not Gone Wrong

My efforts have been wasteful
My principles have really failed
The world seems to have come to an end
And seems my senses have been jailed

Sunset

Sunset has its beauty, I had never known
Till I identified its state with my own.

It represents the end of something dear
