Surfer's poem: Learn to forgive

Learn to forgive the faults of famine, heartbreak caused by a heedless swine, none thy reason for the wrong, writes Mansi Raj Singh.

Learn to forgive the faults of famine,
Heartbreak caused by a heedless swine,
None thy reason for the wrong
Thy just a puppet in His arms
Crushing beneath the pain of love
Lying below the weight of curse
Neither He promises a better new
Nor thy strive; to forget the dues
Look long enough, those glassy eyes
Salt doesn't drip below that face
Smoothen those pouted buds
Because there's no love without love
Learn to live forlorn, dry eyed
There's none the caretaker of thy cries
