Futility


She bore him in her womb for nine months
nourished him with her blood
feed her breast with a divine hope
to attain his youth
accomplished him with full devotion
to enable him to serve the country
to serve the mankind

Now he is grown up
with a dynanic will and power
a lots of dreams are floating
success will kiss his feet

Alas!
his all dreams are futile
he is knocking door to door
seeking for enployment

Government is also failure
to give him employment
Govt.body is engaged
either to save their chair
or to collect, to prepare for next election
no scope is left under sundries of rules

His youth is futile
superanuated before superanuation

Futility of youth is a super crime
in the law of nature

Save the youth from all victims of social, economical and political obligation

    We live in a world where they look for immediate gains and not for the long term future. Nicely stated. (Report) Reply

    Unemployment has risen to unmanageable proportions in India and unless Govt. takes steps to stem the rot, youth power will be a waste. Very nice poem. (Report) Reply
