I AM A POET IN THIS NASTY WORLD

Nasty world

Poet in this Nasty World

I am a hopeless person in this helpless world;

I gonna see my self through the sounds of shores,
i go out and in, to relax a bit;

I see myself as a poet in this nasty world;

I write about things as my eyes adore,

My life is killing me with the waves at shore,
as i sit till the morning clock ticks a four;

The jetski is what i never learned,but
i take it out from the waves un-turned;

Let me die a peaceful life as my eyes are paining,
and they see beauty in various designing,
some fake, some true,
rest all left without a clue;

Sherlock Holmes may find the truth,
but then it will be found out,
that it took a bakers dozen to frost that lie,
in a truth;

And i see myself as poet of this nasty world;

I take an oath to suffix my existence,
with the fulfillment of  my anxiety;

Where had i lived in the past,
where would i have lived in the future,
present has got no answers of these all;

Yet i say i am poet in this nasty world;

I cry, i shy,
from the work i try,
i go, i come,
in the place i hide,
from the world with half minds;

And i say i write a poem,
of and in,
this nasty world.

  1. Viewing the world with a poet’s eyes can be beautiful yet painful, but it’s worth it for the life. I really like and identify with this poem.

    1. True, even i relate myself with the poem and the words here are totally written without making an effort to think and realize what i should write next.

  2. This world can’t be nasty since you live in it.

    1. Actually i agree but i also say that it becomes nasty if we are not looking well after our other beings, we create many craters through our hatred which makes this world a nasty place.
