..Pardon?


What is that sound?
The subway train?
The people's rush?
No, those are very quiet
comparing with the silent shouts
of hearts bursting of love!
Between cracks, I hear the warmest voice:
Don't keep inside: let out, share!
Then, comes an echo..
.. from here, and there..

-Pardon! ? !
-How?
-When?
-To whom?
and..where?

    Elena....
    if linguists frown not
    I hold this name out
    to tyrants to armies
    with daggers of madness drawn
    Elena... I shall whisper to
    disease and hunger and mistrust
    and with these offering
    I shall seek
    to become barrier (though meek)
    amidst strong and weak
    a living breathing apology
    for sins I never did

    Dear friend, what a great philosophy of life you have captured in these great lines! Pardoning makes life relaxed and it is a solution for ever haunting evil- hateredness. I really relaxed while reading this beautiful poem.Marks 10 Rekhamandagere (Report) Reply
