Happy Easter - Poem by M.D Dinesh Nair

The evil surmounts the good
To have the last laugh
And we see a tower collapsing!
-The human tower of civilization
With tons of tales to tell.

In mangled bodies and severed limbs
Cries and sobs try their last luck
The blood gives up its claim
With no hope around snailing even!
The yesterdays bear testimony to today
And the tomorrows wait with a face black or blasted...

A twisted window blocks the landscape
Or else we could have seen for hours
The world beyond the debris and the desert
Look green, let us suppose for a life time
And on our silver faces we cast a smile
Born to bloom for a while.

Night burns the fat of a lusty man
And the crushed flesh begins to rejoice
At the pile of yellow metal gotten!
The clouds floating on the dead skies
Want to shed a few tears
But the cynical sun fumes them down!

Frothing mouths and worn out Somalian frames
Draw terrible sketches across the skies
And the whole planet shivers at the sight
As death has the foulest taste
And his hands have an arctic base cold frozen.

One can still see how
Darkness looms overnight,
Very false truths we are told
There is a light ascending
Or it is going to ascend, we hear...

Under the dying lamp lest us look bright
Even as our eyelids are closing
For a while, just for a while
Some one will take our snap
And tell the world another false truth!

The warring people
Queue up to kill
Faster and earlier...
Life is succeeded by death, they tell...

The human wolves are out to taste
The blood and flesh of the lambs crying
From the far off lands
And their shepherd lies buried deep!

The lone planet will whine on like this
Perhaps till the yet-to-be borns
Shriek from the wombs
-We don`t want to come out.

A trillion cries are heard
But let us not mind it
But let us see only a Christ again sent to the Cross
And then wait to see him resurrecting..
He alone resurrects!

Let us retell the world
The tales and the truths interwoven
For we are sure to be doomed
Even otherwise, even otherwise..

HAPPY EASTER...

In the infinite skies
We would like to trace a good god
Trying to reach out to the human woes
And we would like to take a snap of it
To tell the world- your God still loves you all

HAPPY EASTER!

    The opening lines of the poem by itself portrays the present scenario of the world which cannot be denied by any one.
    The evil surmounts the good
    To have the last laugh

    Yet there is always a way out to overcome the evil. Next time when CHRIST descends to the earth resurrects all those who stood for him until the end of the day!

    We can always hope for the good to happen amidst the evil!


    Wonderful write sir. Thank you for sharing!

    This is a grievously wounded world you are describing, and you are the voice of its pain. But there seem to be no countervailing forces in the world, no people of good will, no Mandela or Gandhi or even a decent politician like
    Obama. Does this mean we are helpless without divine intervention?

    With all black clouds looming in the horizon, I must admit that this is a powerful write... a realistic picture of the bleak world that surrounds us! I have been looking for a silver lining amid the dark clouds, but is disappointed.

    Yes, we know there are wolves out to taste the blood and flesh of lambs and the helpless cries of the attacked fall in our ears! Perhaps the lines I love most in this write are;

    The clouds floats on the dead skies
    Want to shed a few tears
    But the cynical sun fumes them down!

    Amazing write, with thought provoking inspired lines, but there has to be a light shining in all the darkness, good will overcome evil if we learn to rejoice in our differences and embrace change for a better future!
    If you have some time I have posted my 100th poem 'Whispers' if you would like to read it. Great to see you back on PH! Thanks for sharing!
