The freezing Idleness

Having nothing to do

Totally lethargic and lazy

Yelling often to quell boredom

Yawning and frowning

To drain the dragging hours

Better defined as lifeless human logs


Idleness is a deadly disease

Originating in hallowed minds

Gradually passing through the veins

Culminating into untold pains

Stagnating the total process

A sour retreat into nothingness.


A bundle of sighs under its callous spell

Gasping and groaning to get out of it

Why should you be a devil’s partner?

While endless vistas spread everywhere

Wait not for the call to trigger you

Remain vibrant to wing up in time.


Leisure is of course a pleasure for tired minds

But a curse it is when grown into idleness.

Idleness breeds desperate deliberations

Dumping the brain and dampening the mind

Brooding and roaming labeled as weeds

A hurdle for growth and a burden for earth


Learn from the flying birds always on heights

Learn from the moving ants always on strives

Learn from the glazing sun never he retires

Learn from the winding waves always to return

Learn to stay and survive till the day you leave

Learn to try and thrive as you are here to live.
