A Paper has more patience
A paper has more patience,
And has more generosity, than human hearts.
Can feel, can touch all the feelings.
Can smell all the odors of mind;
And can hear all the whispers of heart.
A paper is more sensitive than human hearts.
Like a sponge; can absorb
All the tears of eyes
All the sighs of heart;
And can collect all the ashes of dreams.
A paper is braver, than human hearts.
A paper is fairer than a friend’s heart.
Can keep secrets of all truths and lies,
Can bear all the burdens of time;
A paper has more patience, than people.
Leave your prints;
With golden ink
On the paper of life,
When you left the road of life;
You would remain alive.
In the book shelves, libraries of human mind
Till that world would remain.
Makes you eternal,
Remember paper is eternal.
EXPLANATION OF THE POEM
Dedicate to MISS ANNA FRANK
I would like to dedicate this poem to Miss Anne Frank ,whose quote ,”A paper has more patience than people”. Inspired me to compose this poem.
‘A paper has more patience,’ is the simple and philosophical poem. The whole structure of the poem revolves around the patience of a piece of paper. If we analyze deeply; we will find that there is nothing like a piece of paper. We can express all our feelings on the piece of a paper without any hesitation. A piece of a paper is fairer than a friend’s heart. And there is no barrier, to write on the piece of paper. A paper is able to keep our secrets, which even a best friend can’t do this. With a brave heart a piece of paper is able; to listen all the woes of world.
A paper has all the senses. With all the senses a paper can feel, touch, taste smell and hear all the sad and happy songs of life. And paper is more sensitive than people. People can’t feel the pains of heart. A paper like a sponge; can absorb all the tears of life, and has more courage than human beings to absorb the realities of life.
In a nutshell we can say that, Writing is the catharsis of mind and; when you write all your feelings on the piece of paper; you will feel yourself light and purged. Sometimes that little piece; full of patience proves a fair, courageous friend, gives you; strength to face the realities of life with a brave heart. We can get the benefits from the experience of our ancestors; through a piece of a paper.
Leave your golden prints on the piece of a paper; leave your best images on the paper of life, and after your death that piece would remain in the libraries of human mind, till that world would remain. Because paper is eternal.
And that little piece of a paper makes human beings eternal.
