1. I couldn’t think of anything else
2. The reason mentioned above
I have been maintaining a diary filled with my poetic works since 2010. Previously I use to write poems etc on a piece of paper and never really took it seriously…although I really liked it but still I thought that huh…me…poetry…nah but this all changed when God knows how, one of my poems got published in a magazine two years back. My eyes literally popped out when I saw my name and my poem (ps: I still think that it was a puerile piece of writing) I have thought of posting my poetry on the blog many times but what can I say…I wasn’t sure if it’s a good idea cuz there are so many bloggers who are such good poets and as compared to them....I might not prove be that good. But then some days back, I kinda realized one thing, from the very beginning, I was never ever afraid of criticism. In-fact I have always admired people who point out my mistakes rather than sweet talkers. What’s stopping me then???…nothing. So here goes:
Thou knoweth not the deeds ye did,
The bad ones, which ye cannot get rid,
The good ones, which are not enough,
Oh! Not enough, just not enough.
The day that comes like death itself,
Will make thy flesh creep to your bones,
The day when no one will be safe,
Not a soul, nay not even one.
That day is the Day of Judgment,
Where ye will be reminded of every deed,
Of happiness or sorrow or of torment,
And ye have to pay for every crime committed.
I am keeping my fingers crossed. Your admiration or criticism will be appreciated J
