Poem: The Struggle For Existence

The tree is too generous
to hide its helplessness
and the golden creeper is opportunist
to accomplish its earthly compulsion-
‘’The struggle for existence’’.
Here,
as the difference is significant
and debatable too
so accountable is their pains and gains
obtained
in the process of their mutual transaction
where,
the tree gets a beautiful golden crown
from the golden creeper
in exchange for a free shelter to it
and the watchful world-
the best judge-
the bewitched evaluator,
proclaims its partial verdict soon
giving the golden creeper
a universal recognition as a struggler
while
the passive tree gets a slow suffocating death penalty.
