Rakesh Swain wrote a poem with a warning. A fair warning for those who give love. Be careful, who you will give your heart.
Yes, his work is published before on our website. Then we used the name he previously used on Instagram. Now it’s time to inform you that he writes his poetry under the name Rakespoetry.
We, as in the people on this planet, show love in many ways. When giving away our heart, this doesn’t mean that there won’t be problems ahead. Rakesh compares this with the sunflower. This flower seems to do its best, to grow to the sun. A maximum of sunbeams can be caught this way.
In ancient times, the Greeks believed that this flower was a symbol of Clytie or Clytia. She was a water nymph, who’s heart was broken by Helios. This flower has much to do with love, so this metaphor works. Especially when it comes to the broken love that Rakesh writes about.
The problem with our world, according to Rakesh, is that we focus on these sunflowers. They get the attention. It is the seeds of this flower that did all the work. We ignore those who are taken for granted. The sunflower, that is us. The seeds are those who are truly there for us. Isn’t it time, we showed them more love?
Rakesh writes beautiful poems about life and love. This is just one of the fine examples by his hand. A poet worth to follow on Instagram, according to us.
The problem with this world is
the sunshine will always
love the sunflower
without ever knowing
it was the weed that stayed up all night
