MY POEM REVIEWED BY EMINENT REVIEWER RAJ KISHORE PATNAIK

HUMBLED AND HONOURED.

METAPHOR OF LIFE!

The different job you complain about
The dream of someone unemployed
The mischievous child that test your patience is the dream of the childless
The small house you think is too cramped
Is the dream of someone homeless
The modest savings you worry over
Is the dream of those drowning in debt
The health issue you consider burdensome are the dream of someone fighting a terminal illness
The fact that your mistake are not display the world to see is the dream of those haunted by their past
The peace of mind you have
The restful sleep you enjoy
The meal you easily access
These are dream for those living in war torn regions
We must cherish everything we have
Afterall nobody knows
What tomorrow might bring.
