What is your favorite poem and why?

Poems may be the keys to understanding how the invisible pieces of our soul fit together. Poems are tools that help us not only to understand ourselves but also the world around us.

As Amartya Sen said - "If one can find the right poem, quoting someone else can be as much an expression of one's deeper self as anything one can write oneself."

  • Nov 28 2011: Did you hear about the rose that grew
    from a crack in the concrete?
    Proving nature's law is wrong it
    learned to walk with out having feet.
    Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
    it learned to breathe fresh air.
    Long live the rose that grew from concrete
    when no one else ever cared.
