Face Of Time - Poem by Mittur Ramprasad


Face of time is not black and white
Changed has its color in its flight
Tainted it is with feelings of prejudice
Faded is line between justice and injustice

Every thing is by reason of default
Mau it be love or making an assault
Every time it is the same old shame
No one is willing to take the blame

Irony is the moment two forces clashing
Each blaming the other for the bashing
One end up dying, other not saying victory
They end up hiding from society's decree

Then came the uproar from the society
Instilling racial element which is not witty
Rather than arguing about the incidence
They smear color of bigotry into evidence

Black and white is not crystal clear color
Become it has nebulous in life's parlor
Black and white is not transparent any more
Become it has tenuous on life's revered shore

Divided is the opinion among the activists
Calling each other extremists and racists
Forgetting the dignity of all the victims
Depriving them of their chances to redeem

Everyone claims their fight is for the truth
Ignoring the facts everyone acts like sleuth
Wonder if they ever look into the mirror
Afraid they are of seeing image of horror

One has died cannot tell his side of story
Other one is defending explaining history
Everyone else is marching to their own beats
While the truth has taken heels to fleet

When the dust is settled sacred truth will be muddled
There will not be closure even after truth is unveiled
The story keeps arousing the sentiments of the conflict
Never ever ends even after writing the final verdict
