Poetry: The Desperate Era!

The Desperate Era!

Laws are being broken,
laws are being made
Humanity being forsaken 
Leaving the people jaded

There’s no stopping the crimes
Exist did ever, any safer times?
Money rules, man is the slave
Cowardice rises, where are the brave?

Skyscrapers stand tall
Mocking Mother Nature’s fall
Will there be any future,
For the kids to rupture?

Captured in the four walls
Listening to drunken brawls
Frightened spirits call
‘Is this hell, after all?’

    Very apt words for the present times. But if we have discovered Hell, we also have the power to discover Utopia. Lets hope for the best

    People always talk of the future a 100 years from now. I worry that we may not leave anything for the kids of the next generation itself, forget a century from now. Global warming, floods and quakes, extinction of animals, wars & pillage… no end to any of these!

    I think a lot of us wonder if we are residing in hell – or at least a kind of purgatory.

    True! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Roshan! 🙂

    If we look at the counts of violence and cruelty we have done to the species of the world, yes this certainly is hell. Powerful write.

    Like they say – heaven and hell is all here. On this Earth, within the world. Beautiful poem.

    You've beautifully captured the essence of what we are all going through.

    I have a lot to be grateful for in life, Radhika, but I do wonder about the hell that so many poor people have to go through.

    Only we can make it peaceful, is that not right, Subha? 🙂

    05 . Sep . 2016
  26. Radhika Mundra

    But as we have shaped it into a hell, there's an equal probability of turning it around, isn't there, Rajlakshmi? 🙂

    So do I, Corinne, so do I… We are all going through our personal hell, just that someone's a little too hot and someone's a little too cold.

    A significant illustration with a profound question ending those lines. Now we all have the choice to continue with regression or veer onto the path of progression.

    05 . Sep . 2016
  32. Radhika Mundra

    True, it all depends on the path we choose. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Rodger!

    The bitter truth! Loved your poem. It was short and to the point.

    Liked the tempo, and the expression more. Although an irregular rhyme scheme there, the poem very well serves its purpose.
