As There Was No Other Option... - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair
In the beginning I was`nt there...
Like God who was`nt there for good reasons....
But I too emerged from nothingness
And as I wanted to act soon I got into it.
It had already been very late I knew.
I travelled to the the Mercury and the Venus
Where I could hear no human or animal sobbing..
I next went to the Mars and the Saturn too
Where too none cried or sobbed.
My space shuttle then took me to the Jupiter and the Uranus
Where I heard the silence of the universe,
So was the case with the Neptune too.
The Pluto cried for a visit, but I said, ' You are a cool planet'.
Many other Solar systems I saw
None had woes, a sob nor a cruel life...
Back at the earth I once more heard
Humans crying and sobbing as ever before-
The have nots and the miserables were they as ever before.
And I ordered the BLAST of the green planet!
The planet Earth was thus no more there-
And God 'the almighty' said, 'Well done'.
But added, 'Speak up, dear unknown friend'.
I began my story of emergence and relevance.
MY MIND AS REVEALED TO GOD....
...........When I blasted the earth with all life on it
There began a phase of silence in the solar system.
God ' the almighty ' further said, ' What next? '
I stared at him and asked, ' What do you mean? '
And a greater silence surrounded us next.
He said, 'Brother, your act leaves me null and void,
Along with this end you know, my relevance has been lost'.
I retorted, 'Your relevance was never my concern
And I have just righted a wrong done by causes unknown'.
God 'the almighty ' fumed within I knew, but He kept mum.
I said, 'Listen, the origin of life was`nt an error,
As a choice was`nt there within the first organism
And life had no pretentions of the kind.
Then, you were`nt there to create a relevance'.
You were not there as none thought and spoke of you'.
I said, 'Listen, then emerged the man the supreme
And he invited you into his lobby to wrong many a right.
Religions and their scriptures had you fattened....
Men and women and the old and the young
Sang hymns and your relevance got a glitter'.
Life on the planet was a mixture of pleasure and pain
And there blew the winds of disaster of might and wealth.
Crumbling the castles of ' civilization and humanity'.
Emerged many animals that crushed the hapless,
Still there were you, man said, everywhere signifying no relevance'.
I said, 'Listen, the pathos and the plight of the flora and the fauna
Spread over millenia necessitated my emergence.
From nothingness have I emerged thanks to you,
With blind eyes you saw your ghost pouncing somewhere'.
God 'the almighty' was disintegrating, the image was silent.
He thought of talking about the eternity promised
But I silenced him saying
JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED
And he was now silence FROZEN!
The planets minus the earth still revolved round the Sun
And there was an end to the dual notions of
The Great creation and The big bang.
The Milky way and the galaxies lingered on..
God 'the almighty' withered into the nothingness.
As there were`nt minds to think, nor mouths to speak next
The final philosophy of silence began and
I was`nt there anymore for the work had been done.
As I woke up from the dream
I saw the miserable planet around me alive
And as there is no other option left
I pen down this poem!
