A New Start - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

We have to find new ways in any case
Life will be in turmoil and can’t be at ease
We got to think of new energy and release
A new wave with conceptual change please

It will take us to new height
If we throw our complete weight
Think not of wrong but always right
To win over foes without any fight

For centuries we have lived with hatred
We are not given to understand and always mislead
We have failed in between those lines to read
How can we pretend ignorance and plead?

Time is so short and we got to come out
It may lead us to annihilation and complete rout
Why do we think unnecessarily all about?
Why not strengthen the system instead to flout?

It is the heart that should feel pulse
Any bad ideas may enter but must be repulsed
No single move from our side to malign the humanity
All nice thoughts lead to the purity

It is the way you thin and profess
It is the guilt you realize and confess
Anything you feel bad but correct
Remedial action with wise act

No one moves aimlessly on earth
Every one is endowed with its worth
Nothing is permanent and likely to parish
Like bubbles in water it may vanish

The spoiled milk can’t be restored to its position
You must have fine and new composition
Every move has got its action and reaction
Nobody is here with accuracy and perfection

We have tolerated and suffered enough
We have shed enough blood and talked rough
Time has come to revive old spirit
We must learn to live with dim light
The time has come to think of new order
We can’t face another new disorder
It got to be buried underneath at depth
This only will prove our real strength

We are all sons and daughters of the same God
We have no right to make others to rot
The victory may not be sweet even if bitterly fought
It may only matter if real peace and happiness is brought

It is our sacred duty to defend
Make all the changes or mend
Make not foes but friends
Bring everything to its logical end

We will have to afresh and bury the past
If not then destiny will be over and not last
We will be completely lost in the wilderness
It shall remain only for attaining the oneness

    I find many of the lines in this poem to be very true. To me it seems that there is a purpose for each of us on earth, and why do we stand in each other's way. Good poem. (Report) Reply

    ‘Think not of wrong but always right/To win over foes without any fight’

    First line verily of Swami Vivekananda [positive thinking] and second line of Mahatma Ghandhi-ji spoke about Non-Violence…

    Very wisely incorporated in your poem
    Thanks Sir
