Treasure Island

Md. Asadullah

(11th july)

I doubt!


Will it help?

If dams are made out of handkerchiefs
to hold floods of sufferings and griefs.

Will it help?

If murmurs are subdued within glasses of loyalty
to wash away the sins of ancient royalty.

Will it help?

If we break all ancient walls
to break barriers between hearts, wide and tall.

Will it help?

If we make some ground in oceans mixing 'self respect' and 'ancient sins'
or learn how to survive in waters without gills and fins.

Will it help?

If progeny is punished for their inherited guilt
and each drop of brutal blood is spilt.

Will you promise?

Then you will again find no reasons to divide
and live without any quarrel happily, satisfied.

I doubt!

As it has nothing to do with 'ancient walls' or 'ancient sins'.
It is something related to species and has nothing to do with genes.

    Will it help?

    If we break all ancient walls
    to break barriers between hearts, wide and tall.

    A question thrown straight at the face.... over which we are made to stand dumb! (Report) Reply

    certain traits are genetic, the rest are not as you have explained in this poem. The variables such as religion, customs and culture are not imprinted in our genetic codes...Let us keep all these variables tied to the leash and never let it to rule our harmony (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
