Rating: 4.7

cruelty conquers light of earthly living
by tools of narrow endings of mortality
devours the sweet breath of air
humanism is still a mockery by greed

mist of dawn happens to disown truth
by black curtain of wild fear of night
cry of innocence rumbles at criss-cross
gleaning tears to eyes at grave yard

yet I am speechless to their love of reason
as rogue’s eyes smudge over humble smiles
where is the mankind lost in delusion
as illusion pervades by dogmas of religion

where is the belief as when disillusioned
fear flounces to rock rhythm of blood
love smolders in its room of smitten wall
would you not come back to embrace tomorrow

Cruelty is the order of the day for some kind of fundamental religion. But there are religions of tolerance still on this earth on account of which the world survives though part of it is in trouble always due to wars in the name of religion. A fine piece of work by the poet indeed!

I feel the kindness in this poem, I think one of your most compassionate poems. i rather count myself a 'humanist' these days, somewhat disillusioned by how all religions except Buddhism seems to be being exploited - but that's nobody's fault exactly as human beings for the most part are doing the best they can, including me, to lead the good life. So i understand or think I do the way you are using humanist in your poem, the way it is practiced rather than the ideal, the same way as religion is used, though really most people mean well in their religions also. Perhaps it's because, as Krishnamurti implies, we rely on belief rather than use beliefs as stepping stones This is a warm poem, I think, a warm-hearted poem. To me, a Humanist poem.
