Fight No War - Poem by nanditha srinivasa

Once there was a day

My nerves were alive, via

Not a dropp to flow;

My senses were tuned, yet

Not a breeze to note

For it was meant, so the world said.





Once there was a day

My boundaries were eaten

By none but me;

Whom to question, when

The convict lies within

For it was meant, so the world said.





Once there was a day

The dictator took my throne, and

I was thrown. My soul behind

Wondering why

The world tore me apart

For it was meant, so the world said.





Once there was a day

The Clouds thundered to chunks,

Shading Immature red amidst

The eternal blue, and

Whirling lissome ever since.

For it was meant, so the world said.





Once there was a day

I knit with jute, speeding

Across every penny, and

Now with all to survive, yet

None to love

For it was meant, so the world said.









Once there was a day

I counted hours, as seconds

They were, helped me less

For time had passed, and

Now I felt.

For it was meant, so the world said.





Once there was a day

For you and me to live

But now we rest

On the floors, cause

We have wrung

For it was meant, so the world said.





Once there was a day

Every prayer voiced the same.

And then I knew, what

The potion had been

Meager love but survival alone

For it was meant, so the world said.





For Once there must be a day

Humans turn humans

Humanity pledges humanity

Life respects life, and then

Lets’ expect our fly

For it is meant so, the world would see.
