Vinod Kumar

Rookie (kannur-kerala-India)

Devil


Take the Beautiful sky and earth
I don`t want
Stay in the Beautiful Worship places
I don`t want
Enjoy the Devotional songs
I don`t wan`t
Receive the day flower and night candles
I don`t want
Hear the Beautiful bird songs
I don`t want
I want only a small place
In the conjusted human heart
And all buried place darks
And ugly garbage mountains
And hear ear breaking noise
And view eye breaking blasts.

    Could this be a poem to the Biblical dragon? If so, he does not want a little place; he wants it all. He is merely working behind the scenes. Why do you think the world is in such chaos? The real reason for my query is the sixth line, is there not a problem? I am not aware of such a word. Also, perhaps you meant these lines to read ‘want it’.

    I don't want... how many times we all say that to ourselves... rejecting the goodness and wishing for violence. You got it, Kumar, there's the devil in us. (Report) Reply
