Indira Renganathan


Boomerang


Anger a Boomerang destructive..
To self own itself an enemy afflicted
Never can anger bond with the opponent
Instead can acquire grudgeful resentment
What else than being angry, angered then..
A thought of 'why' could be
Erratic, errorful itself On self own
Than on others erratic, errorful
O'dear friend
Attest, can any one errorless..no
Pray thereso by self's conscience
For no anger, no sin
O'dear friend
Attest, can anyone erroless...yes
So if there, pervades then love wholesome
A Boomerang constructive sans anger
O'dear friend, you decide on a Boomerang
Constructive or destructive..

    'Pray thereso by self's conscience
    For no anger, no sin'

    Liked these lines the most because anger, being a type of reflex action, requires divine intervention to be vanquished. (Report) Reply

    It's a class apart! Commendable effort to bring forth the danger of anger; contextually superb with 'boomerang' mixed in to bring home the ill effects of anger being inflicted on the innocents! (Report) Reply

    Very true, 'Boomerang' can be construtive or destructive depending upon the
    intensions of the thrower! I WOULD LIKE TO CONDEMN THE UNPROVOKED
    ATTACKS ON OUR INDIAN STUDENTS IN AUSTRALIA! OTHER WRITERS MAY ALSO LIKE TO JOIN ME! 10+

    This clever poem about the inevitable karmic consequences of anger is very well thought out and cleverly presented. As an Australian, I particularly enjoyed your boomerang metaphor. As ye sow, so shall ye reap. May love's boomerang return to its sender in abundance. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
