Unto Divinity for Justice


Being a lovable spouse
She cared the husband dauntless
Nurtured a nest of five chicks
Her selfless, painless and passionate self
Upheld benevolence

Smile was her grace
Soft talk was her praise
Calmness, the value she hoisted
Care she shared being in a live race

Every hair follicle of chicks she raised
Knew her caressing finger touch best
Every taste bud's need in the den
Was catered to, belittling none

Never fluttered wings above the warren
Yet raised all chicks to traverse horizon
Carrying her vision unto next generation
Truly honored mother par excellence

Tireless grandma, as she willfully chose
Was robbed of her breath, in broad day light
By a heartless raunchy biped primate
Worth not letting to share the air we breathe

Any super power of any divinity
Why keep such elements so vicious
On this soil to play with social fairness

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
