once lived a boy
happy in his own li'l world
the world of love & care
flowers of purity bloomed where
he was humble and sweet
unaware of the creatures like shrewd
the world couldnt see his gay
and left him alone in a bay
he was deprived of his possessions
One by one lost many relations
they crushed him under their foot
his innocence was tried to uproot
he tried to move ahead
but everytime was pushed back & back
he couldnt stand unshaken
when to the inferno, he was taken
he was shattered again & again
his prosperity is now unable to regain
his dreams were all shattered
his existence didnt matter
one day hell a lot he cried
when his prayers were sent back unreplied
damn the people he said to himself
I will live for myself not for anyone,
his wounds have now become scar
and he is no more sweet but SOUR !!!

    I liked the line. I will live for myself not for others now.. A positive note.:-) and the poem is beautiful. . Portrays much of reality today.. How people try to suppress a innocent and nice person.

    hey you reminded me of my poetry "you called for it!!" though this one is not as harsh as that one was.. but you expressed your thought in a very subtle way... I loved it!

    "I will live for myself not for anyone"

    That sums it up. I don't think people in this world have enuf time to think abt everyone else. So why not concentrate on yourself and by doing just that u might be able to provide hapiness to people around you.

    P.S. I am not selfish. But I love myself more than anyone else.

    when i came to last few lines, i thought it was ending on a positive note but again than, you ended with 'he is no more sweet but sour'..i guess that should not be the case..what ever happens one should not lose their sweetness :)

    hey i understand but i second neha..by changing your nature you are letting adversities win over you, so always keep smiling and have fun

    @riya
    hey thank you, i think that was the positive in the poem..but for doing so one has to change his natural self..and i don't if its good or bad for a person

    @kajal
    ya quite on the lines of 'you called for it', i think this self realization and strengthening thing happens in phases, first is what my poem coveys you decide internally that enough is enough , and the next stage is what your poem coveys, you send across a message in a more aggressive manner

    @saket

    @neha
    i agree with you neha but, there are times you can do that only when you change yourself, and if it can be done in some other way, i don't know it as yet :)

    @joy
    i guess you have to adapt to tackle adversities and to adapt you have to change and change can be good and bad both ways

    loved the way u presented..the world is becoming selfish..now, no one can easily maintain the life tht boy was trying to lead initially!!

    hey nice one as a poem, but the last line is bit disturbing, he is no more sweet but sour
    its good to see boy is standing up against adversity, but the cost he is paying is his innocence and sweetness and that's disturbing
