Gold Star - 10,501 Points (13.12.1955 / howrah)

Want to be back


There was no terrorism
in the name of religion
Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain and Christian fought shoulder to shoulder
for the sake of freedom
there was an extreme brotherhood
amongst all

There was no rape cases
coming in news
there was no corruption
pickpocketting of relief fund
there was no bribery
cheating the common people

May be there was exploitation
oppression and ill treatment

But now, even the voices are purchased
made them deaf and dumb
left to die in solitude
corruption cheating bribery rape
and all evil deeds are spreading
like the forest conflagration
where no fire brigade is available
to extinguish the fire and
all greens getting burnt into ashes

In such a terrific situation
i pray the Almighty
for resurrection of those patriot
who enlightened the countrymen
with rays of freedom

Want to be back to 1940s
to cope up the present crisis

We are electing government
but who ever is going on throne
being blind with power of rein

So want to be back to 1940s
for resurrection of those poets and patriots
made their life unveil
for a prospective future.

    Beautiful prayer. Someone must come from somewhere. Is oppression a necessary condition to groom patriots? I hope not. Thank you for all wonderful thoughts in your poem. (Report) Reply
