Let Us Sit And Wait
Why the relation are put to test
So in rules,
So in regulations,
So strict up to evaluations
That lives are even put to risk? (1)
Though `tis oft` a substance of thought
(For pride and credit, for social values
Or for all in the sense of so called liberty?
Self-pomp, avarice, and self-dignity)
To put the relations `bove lives` task
Or wear the black face a white mask.(2)
If dignity consists in the risk of lives,
If tomb of house shall bear the gong
The gong of credit of sacred values
Challenging the liberty of innocent hearts
Like the God in the battle to Devil;
Let us then just sit and wait-
Wait to find what`s dignity
What`s the honour newly defined;
And wait and see
How the lives are supposed to flourish!
How the hangings shall control the population!
And how the black-hearts shall shine bright
Washing themselves in the showers of blood!
Let us sit and wait............!
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Stanza (2) -
The so called people of honour- the conservatives-for their self dignity put their relations to risk, though they know it very sadful from heart yet for their so-called social dignity(white face) they put the relations to hard test and risk and some times to let it break.
Stanza (3) -
If the dignity of a house in the society consists only in putting to risk the innocent hearts thay just desirewd a like of joy,
If the glory (gong of credit and sacred values) of a house is supposed to be secuired by menacinbg and threatening challenges to the innocent hearts like that of God to Devil then let us sit and wait for the new dwfinitions of dignity and honour in this world.
Rther it shall just be a way to control the population, griving at the crush of their blood relations yet trying to look happy to the society!
