Before It's Too Late - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

They say we have history
To back our claims
Tolerance was our “Mantra”
And in speech that appeals Yet
In reality they play with it
And they say we are just testing
To what extent it can go
But they forget it is a silent
Bomb and volcano which they create
In a process very slow
No country can survive by remaining
Aloof in this global village
The effect on one will translate
To others, let then mends their ways
Before it’s too late
A bird sitting in bush is better than two in the air.

    We can all continue to fight over religion, political stances, caste and various other 'ideological differences' while the politicians continue to exploit us - 'divide and rule'! ! Sigh, in a country that has embraced a whole plethora of cultures for centuries we are fighting over 'tolerance' and 'intolerance'... Never had I been this sad Asim... I wish we all - citizens of this country - Indians - human beings, finally just accept that being a human is our identity and live peacefully.. A fine poem.. Thank you for sharing... (Report) Reply

    Thanks for sharing your views, I also believe why should they retort to such cheap means to remain in power, It can be done even without that and people are open and will support....Thanks much for your review and encouraging comments brother Souren.
