Crimson Tears Poem by Sathya Narayana

Crimson Tears

Rating: 5.0

Who killed whom?
How many died
our men; their men?
Crushed flesh and bones
knew no difference.
Spilled crimson tears
mourned sans bias.
Remnant pathos
filled the ambience
with quiet noise
and shrilling silence.

OH! Brothers versus brothers
in senseless violence
look at thoses spirits
of lost lives precious
fighting aimless battles
now in repentence.
Look at these scared beings
waiting in patience
for eternal peace.

Not by guns
not by malevalence
Use love and kindness
know God's oneness
and earn boundless happiness.

Knowing God's Oneness, we can never understand the carnage of those who take life as if it were nothing. The questions will never have an answer, there is no reason good enough for the sins against God and Humanity......10

This is beautiful, Sathya. Something so complicated can be so simple when put into the proper perspective, as you have done here. It emphasizes the senselessness of war and the destruction of precious souls before they've had a chance to live and experience the joys of life. Without bias - we are all of the One, and each spirit deserves equal respect and love. A powerful piece. Linda

Concise, terse, and filled with haunting imagery. You grab the reader's attention for sure. Well done. Just one point: should it not be noise verses noice? -John
