BELOVED POET- LAXMI PRASAD DEVKOTA
New York, October 7, 2009
In your loving memory on this day of your 100th birthday.
Your words still ring in our ears, and bring us hope through out many years.
You cared and served everyone and now we’re returning the love.
The poems you wrote brought joy to many people, some might have envied you but you never stopped writing.
Though you are not here you will always be in our heart.
This poem was written in your honor and so were many others.
It will never be as good as yours but that won’t stop us from writing.
WHO AM I?
Jersey City – New Jersey
As the days pass along,
As time moves on
A very essential one indeed
Forms in my mind…
This question haunts me day and night,
making me desperate for an answer.
This question, who am I?
Is so powerful that many great and wise,
Many great and wise have not been able to answer it…
As the days pass, I realize
I am the person who wants to reach the moon,
I am the person who wants to fly,
I am the person who can do anything…
I am who I am,
A person who is bold and strong,
Wise and cunning…
A person who is always striving for more…
This belief makes me stronger and makes me feel
I am the one who is the best, above anything and anyone…
I am the person who can control the nature
I am the person who will gain victory
even if it means destroying others
I am the one who is IMMORTAL…
Yet as I see times pass by,
As I see days turn into night and back to day again,
A bright ray of answer comes to me…
It is a voice from nature which says:
You are not who you think you are!
You are but a mere creation of nature…
You are a child nature,
You are the one sent to the Earth to spread
Love, Humanity and Peace…
Alas! My eyes opened and I
eternally realized, I am not
I am a creation of nature
A mere object that can be destroyed
Anywhere and anytime if I go against nature…
Let this be a lesson,
A lesson to all young and old
You are what you are,
And don’t try to change it…
Be who you are and learn to accept it…
Jersey City – New Jersey
As I walk along the streets, I see many cars and
different types of vehicles puffing
polluted black smoke out of their engines
As I walk more I see people,
THE CITIZENS OF EARTH
Throwing their filthy litter everywhere
Doesn’t that hurt the Earth?
It may not seem like it but the Earth is a gigantic living thing
It also gives a lot of other living creatures a home to live in
So how does it feel to hurt a giant living thing?
I also see people throwing their waste into
Rivers and waterways
Are we that heartless?
Do we not know that there are creatures living underwater?
They all depend on water, even we do!
There is a lot of air, water and land pollution
Going on the earth…
I wonder can we prevent these things from happening?
YES we can, if we all work together
This earth has given us a lot of opportunities
So we need to give her something in return…
So lets be proud and say YES! We can help
We can help our mother Earth and make our future better
Lets all work together to liver in peace and happiness…
