Untold Pain - Poem by Shila Sinha

I heard a shrill cry

Heartbreaking Unbearable

That makes me perplexed

Left me paralyzed with shock

And benumbed with panic

That took away my breath

Nostalgia veiled for sometime

But being the man of today

I have to endure all pain


Soul is stirred violently

Awaken from the slumber

The feeling that is untold

Becomes visible with hatred and agony

That bursts into violence

Causing vandalism, destruction of innocent life

Leading a road to ruin


There nobody can breathe peacefully

Everywhere there is disbelief

Putting everybody in unrest

Friends of today becomes the foe of tomorrow

Sufferings give us the lesson to fight

But relentless fight with violence

Won't give us the peace

Bring life to a cease


Wailing and moaning

Make our life standstill for a while

But never bring any great change

Life is flowing so are we

Yet to find the happiness

That is ceased in the violence.
