Where we are heading to?

Developing country called we are
even while nearing seventy years
Fortunate may be generations to come
if not branded under-developed
Policies of peril schemes of motives
sightless rulers landed us in problems
Spineless leaders blaming each other
vie for publicity despite adversity
Dirty politics sinking into the nerves and veins
of our directionless wounded economy
Pulled from different sides the growth is
crippled and left with damaged limbs
Corrupt are powerful and visionless
and hopeless are the helpless populace
Pampered is the corruption hampered is the development
When needed to act we think upon
when needed to deliver we act upon
ignored are the problems with no one to attend
Political unemployed prospering by playing with emotions
Divided are the people with regions, castes, classes and clashes
Poisoned are the minds with sectarian divisions
Ashamed is the common man at the rotten vision of ruling class
Rupee losing its shine diving to the new lows
Plummeted rupee pushing the prices beyond the reach of common man
Fishing in troubled waters policies of ruling class sowing seeds
For creating a new class pf poor doomed to live for ever poor
Inclusive political set up inclusive power sharing
Inclusive policy drafting are the conclusive steps
For an exclusive platform in combining the reclusive youth power

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
