>>> Minority Problem

Sometimes it happens
People belong to majority shout you down by their histrionics
And push you to a corner
May be there is no mistakes done by you
And in you there is no weakness
Yet they will not desist from bullying
Snatching away your honor and pride
Your freedom, religious, linguistic and cultural
They will encroach upon your faith, belief
Force you to abandon your identity
Lure you to assimilate with them
No matter how much there lie ill-logic, injustices and wrongs
They think it is a fun
The only sin you commit
The only fault you inherit is that you are in minority
And their behavior, you may call it anything
But I call it ‘' mass sadism ‘'

Some of them so much engrossed
In love of themselves
Intoxicated to self love and self praise
That they forget that they become a psychopath
A disease, psychological, we call it narcissism
And others so deeply involved
In counting numbers
Obsessed with measuring strength
That they become the believer of delusions
And false notions of power
This is too a mental condition
Psychologically we call it megalomania

Minority problem is not limited
To a certain country or area
To a certain religion or race
It may happen with your ideas, with your thoughts
It is a universal phenomenon, dealing with life
In a place where you are in majority
In other places you are squib damn in minority
I have lived a life in places as of both ways
And I know how it tastes.

Even in a true democratic system
People fail to understand that in case of numbers
In case of minority democracy flips flops
The success of it squarely depends on how you treat your opposition
The people not in power
Less in number
Not with you! ! !

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
