And From Here On - Poem by Prabha Trimurty

World today is ever more secular.
Let us preserve it with harmony.
We must not blunder into perverse,
To degenerate oneself to annihilate,
humankind with injustice.
The clock is ticking away.
This paradox is burning me up.
A new interpretation of what is just.
Seems to swallow the world.

Justice today as I see it.
For the sanctity of human life
Is revenge unleashed upon the world?
By man himself?
A self-focused insanity surrounded by reasons.
Is stretching inwardly rather than outwards.
Blissfully blinded forever in a greater ideal.
