Your World My Lord

The train moved swiftly through the night,
O'er rivers, fields and glens.
The girl was rocking in her sleep,
Smiling every now and then.
Though the rags that she wore on her body,
Had seen many a better day.
She had been told by her daddy,
It had been destined for them that way.

'My Child', he would say,
'Though I love you more than anything in my life,
What can I do - my darling - my sweetheart,
When even God doesn't see how we strive.
I have to work hard each day,
In order that we may,
Get a little bit to eat, before we go off to sleep,
And we pull through another day'.

This World's been moving through time,
Through nuclear explosions and hell.
We've come a long way, since the gold rush days,
Yet for gains our daughters we'll sell.
The sons being raised by their daddies,
Would have seen many a better day.
Had they not been groomed to be baddies,
To steal, to rape and to slay.

O my Lord, don't you see,
How this World that you've made needs advice?
Show us the path, the way it should be,
Sans avarice and malice and vice.
We've slaughtered, abused and we've slayed,
Our morals have blown in the glade.
Please give us the sense, to get out of these dense
Dark clouds of Hades we've made.

    You have summed up perfectly the miserable state the world is in and the tragic state of humanity. This resonated with me as I often find myself feeling the same way. A very compelling piece that reaches out and touches the reader deep within their own humanity. Makes one think. Keep on creating Dipy my friend!

    superb very relevant......we all are in the train having compartments of corruption, low morale, absence of humanity..........a nice poem and a beautiful prayer.....

    the seperation of worlds by seas and mountains leads men to forgetfullness. creating an anarchy in a hierarchy that should never have existed in the first place. forcing men to pray on the weak. a nice poem reflective of a country in need of change and equality.

    Its the same old story of the {girl child}, {female foeticide}, {girl rape} and countless abuses heaped on this magnificient beautiful species ever created by God. Although I am a man, your poem certainly made my eyes moist. You do have a soft heart and this will help you to write sensitive poems such as this one.Keep writing please more. We can keep reviewing each others poems and learn more of poetry.Regards,
    Manohar Bhatia.
