So many days go by, without me reading any poetry
So many days go by, with me getting so absorbed by negative news
So many days go by, without me listening to sounds of nature
So many days go by, with me living a life almost on autopilot

I have made a decision
that I will read a poem every day.
that I will try to write a poem at least every week,
that I will pay more attention to nature
that I will give more love and more kindness to the world.

I hope you are with me on this.
I have read today a wonderful poem by Rabindranath Tagore and
I want to share it here with you:

Where The Mind Is Without Fear 

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake
