A Call Poem by Preetam Shetty

A Call

Rating: 4.9

Come back oh divine father
There is a lot of collision
My brothers are dying here
Being killed in the name of religion

Today looking at your world
I know that you sigh
Mother earth is being burdened
With an eye for an eye

Your creation is being ruined
Man is forgetting to be noble
They fail to understand the teachings
Of Geeta, Kuran and Bible

They want to build your shrine
On the death beds of innocents
No mother is being spared
To wail over corpses of infants

They have enough to spend
To display arms and volatiles feat
Ignoring their neighborhood
Where a hungry child wants to eat

My faith is being torn
I cannot find my Krishna
There are blood stains all around
No earth to bow to Allah

What a nice poem evoking need for religious understanding and brotherhood. The sentiments portray real pain which the humanity is passing through as a result of fanatic, religious blindness as scant repsect for human sentiments like kindness and unity. Well done. Excellent. I rated 9/10. Thanks for sharing.

You have highlihted the countless barbaric acts committed today the world over in the name of religion in a very poignant manner. Your message is loud and clear. I just pray that it reaches every nook and corner of our planet.

True and sad..In the name of who? .. Which? .. What? ..As long as there is no accept for others choise of believing in whatever they want to regardless of own belief we will always have such horrors..dont know why..we keep doing the same mistakes over and over again..
