A Second Saviour


Life gets annihilated, history rewrites,
War grasps nature with its caliginous veil
Human race cries in intense pain,
Green goes dry as icebergs melt,
And death triumphs in torrential rain,
While submerged humanity rummages
Seeking for a hopeful verse!
Erupting volcanoes, devastating quakes
Turns around those blissful days
As we mourn with each heavy blow
And dig our own destiny in a deep hollow,
Stars don't shine in this bloody universe
We wait for a new saviour, a second Jesus.

    Mankind is responsible for the slow destruction of earth. But at the same time, hopes build in the name of a second saviour. Fantastic piece of work. (Report) Reply

    Saving from what and how long is the perennial question. We have been building castles in the perishable earth and once we return to our very past of restrained life, perhaps a solace may be found. I appreciate your observations on the ailing life and this poem has commendably been well rendered. (Report) Reply

    Indranil, let me say I like this poem.sorry for the despair.
    But look at the situation in a less emotive way.
    We are all apt to blame God for what is happening.
    And we forget him when everything goes right.
    Now we want him to come and send someone to clean the floor for us.

    Think of the but hearing of the red Indians, the gassing of Jew and the actual killing of each other in Syria, Egypt and rapes and murders, God did not do any of these.
    There are more things happening in the ether, that you and me can think of.
    And those natural disasters are direct results of the cries and the fears of thousands butchered, and the spirits finding no war to go where they should.
    I do not believe God should another one to be butchered on the cross again.
    We should start doing the cleaning. Prayer may be one of the way to clean.

    I m sorry. Please excuse me if I hurt your feeling. Not meant to

    Hope, courage, determination, compassion, empathy, integrity, good poetry like the present one and little push from that Unified Force in the Sky is all that it will take to resurrect our world. So lets get started! ! We are so many who share these values and beliefs! ! Thank you Indranil for this masterpiece. (Report) Reply

    Very good poem.Very time the reformers come, they will be tortured and killed
    Majority do not like change of the established system of exploitation. Just read what Jeasus said of Priest n the holy Bible, Matthew,1-16. and ccompare the rites of religious people against the advice, : (Gospel of Mark,29-34) (Report) Reply

    In this time of stark realities and dismal occurrences, humanity rummages for hopeful verse! There we poets have great relevance! Let us brigthen the gloom by lighting a candle! (Report) Reply

    It would seem, Indranil, the more the need for the hopeful verse, the less likely is its advent. Living may be more likely without the hopeful verse. After all there was a lot of life before verse. (Report) Reply

    We surely mourn over the devastation and war..truly and beautifully expressed but why wait for a Jesus..we ourselves have to create a beginning..in us is every eternal power every Jesus and by writing such verses you are already becoming the part of that new beginning! ! (Report) Reply
