Poem53.Return Gift

Return Gift



Squeezing out  little by little 
each day myself ,like lemon
why don't you do it at once
why you give pain to me?
know that it's not possible
but then at times
wish it to be at once...

Days are moving by
oh! life, you are taking my juice
fear do I ?
The body when the juices out
just like the lemon shell
no use,can't keep.
so burn it away...

But then I am happy
I have atleast juice
to offer,the world
from where I get my food
my comforts,everything
So let this be the return gift
from me to the dear world...

Nice metaphor...

Kavita said...

Oh wow.. what a noble thought!! You really are too kind to the world, my friend...
But yes, many a time we have to be "the bigger man" here... and take it all with a pinch of salt.. isn't it?

Very beautifully written, my friend... wistful, but oh so honest!
