Freshman - 1,232 Points (India.)

When Dissected Souls.


We all boast of the golden past,
And delight dining upon its flavors,
But, have no faith in our very SELF,
Though often boast of buoyancy.
Attitudes in personality impressive,
Self reliance, hard work and consistency,
Uprightness, self esteem and faith,
We all do orate and propagate
In every occasion of panic and doubt,
Thus we escape into inferior shades.
Experience do season mortals,
But, his craving bubbles to be immortal.
Efforts endless on the paths of life
Continue, adorning with many a maxims.
Youngsters find it rather insane,
As are trapped in life's web so complex.
The wheels keep rolling over the sod of time,
While generations get crushed in recurrence.
Problems brutally burn raw wounds,
But, Solutions always in benefits' bondage.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Unfortunate those away from true natural solutions to their problems, as they are often objected by those who care only their benefits in the first place. [ this is a thought, a reflection of an interview with a group of youngsters the other day, many have lost their confidence and belief even in justice, and so feels life today is hopeless. Have many options, but know that they can’t get their rights freed from the 'benefit-craving', rotten political system(s) ]

    If faith in self is lost, everything is lost. unfortunately our youth is a disillusioned and dejected lot, lost in hopelessness. There is none or any unified body to come to their rescue. Our entire system is caught in the clutches of self seeking people and we are lost in ruminations of a 'glorious past'! A powerful write, Tajudeen! (Report) Reply

    Problems and their solutions have a clock wise motion and sometimes as solutions are there, problems have to precede.. Hopelessness arises out of a state of dejection and the dividing line between the early state of the disappointment and the potential dejection. A fine poem with philosophy as the inner article Tajudeenji.. (Report) Reply
