The Resolve


You wretched human dogs
Have a hearty laugh
Lying over the top
Perverted act has not broken the resolve
Likes of you are not deserved to be called
Human!
Not even dogs?
But sub-humans
With extra- perverted mind
Mind you; you may or not, pay
I won’t pay for the act insane
Neither my courage will drain
I am now ready to train
My guns again
Doesn’t life exist after tsunami?
Ravaging rains dare not stop
Rainbows to appear
Besmirching, stigma, indignity
I am ready to bear.
Cowing down
Thing of the past, now
Humanity may be aghast
But I am not
The life I start de-novo
Which in your dreams
You could never have thought.

    Not even dogs?
    But sub-humans
    With extra- perverted mind..... Nicely painted human mind....10

    not human
    but inhuman
    practice outside
    and saint inside (Report) Reply

    Perversion is everwhere also in Syria - but the face of evil is no longer hidden - it acts with open uglyness. Thanks a lot for sharing, dear Tribhawan. (Report) Reply

    Perversion has been there from the beginning of human history! But now it has escalated as never before! We are appalled by stories of gang rape one after the other! Usually the victims languish in despair and dejection! But here is one who like a phoenix has emerged from the ashes with a resolve to face life with courage and resilience! A poem that will help people of such bitter experiences to think that all is not lost! Great write! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
