Damned Society! - Poem by Vivek Tiwari

Society! Society! Society!
Its obstacle to all liberty!
Eat if the society allows!
Wear if the society allows!
Shelter if the society allows!
And live even if society allows!

Does it cure starvation and poverty?
Does it fill degradation with beauty?
It reins upon with 'Might is right'
Down with weak and pomp upright!

Helps you till you have enough to spend
Quits you a rotten meat
When your crowns to spend is scant.

You yield, you devote, you die for its sake
The resulted reality is a blunder fake.
Keep on feeding its bottomless belly
To deserve its praise, its dammed strategy.

Doth it ever act in reward
To common, to poor, to Destiny discard?
No rule, no rod to power and pomp
All frame is formed for feeble folk.

It preys the meek in tiger's jaws
Tearing the flesh with merciless claws.

Stand alone, valiant and brave
To fight against this vice domain
Rules for freedom should be freely dispersed
Difference of rank, difference of creed
Difference of position should all be cursed.

To bring the change
Be the change
Then there is the right
Then there is Change.

Don't be the driven cattle in fight
Be the hero in the strife.

    Excellent! It is the duty for young fresh minds to judge, sentence, and execute change in society for the bettet.
    With an outside objective opinion the youth of today can see the follies of a stagnant way of thought. Then they
    suggest new ways and have new thought on the changes that might be necessary for the bettermemt. (Report) Reply

    Excellent rendering of thoughts so immaculate and powerful! Your write here laughs at the conventional chains binding the human stocks and badly cries for the re emergence of a substitute forum of humans with real traits and conviction. Thank you Mr Vivek for your random invitation and I feel like having discovered in this mess of poems and their ghostly renditions over this forum. (Report) Reply

    What a poem with great rhythm and flow, the theme is very much strong, we all are chained by the society but it's also worth thinking that what's society? Who make it? Absolutly that are we people who costitute it so to change the society we must change ourselves, To bring the change Be the change Well done Vivek Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
