If Words Worth Alive Today? - Poem by vijay gupta

If words worth alive today?
William words worth wrote about bomb blasts not about daffodils.
He wrote about the smell of gun powder not about the fragrance of the flowers.
When he sees the bloodshed & killings he wrote not about cool breeze beautiful weather he wrote about the nature of terrorism.
He always describes the heart breaking atmosphere of refugee comps not about the beautiful gardens.
He became sad to see the tears of martyr’s widow & never describes the chirping of the birds.
Red roses & tulip became dry & fade to see the faded cheeks of a young girl.
Who lost her younger brother in an explosion?
Instead of cool & calm blue sky
He wrote about the missile
Attack & bombing from the sky & burning colonies
of human beings.
It was fortunate for him
That he was born in eighteenth century not in twenty one century.
So we got beautiful
Narrations of the nature from him.
