The Rainbow of Life..

A POEM :
The Rainbow of Life:

I saw-

A rainbow today.

No-

Its not the rainbow in the sky;

That’s just an illusion

It’s the rainbow

That represents

The innumerable colours of life.

Greed, Selfishness

Represents today’s human;

Jealousy seems to be

Each ones policy;

The greed-

For money, Fame, Power

Has blinded the world!

Around which

Their minds seem to whirl.

Love, Beauty, Sacrifice

Where are they

Where are they?

The depth of love

Has hidden in the dark alcove.

Beauty

For today’s man

Lies on the surface

To search the soul

Who has the time or place?

Who believes in sacrificing?

It has been named as dumbness,

Has no worth left;

A feeling which all try to push out of their mind.

The strength which it gives

They’ve forgotten.

No wonder,

There is so much darkness in every soul!

For the light of happiness-

Seems to be present only in pearls.

The red yellow orange

From the rainbow

Have long since turned grey

Burnt to ashes

In the hearth;

Through the greediness and selfishness

Of  today’s human.

One thought on “The Rainbow of Life..

  1. Abha very beautifully said.Each and every word is so true but it’s so disappointing in this world very few we find who live for others and who like to sacrifice. Really loved the picture also.
