Innocence Crucified - Poem by vaibhav shah

The way I got involved
I could not make revolt
Their ill-intention
Crushed my ambition
With my utter innocence
I respected their arrogance
But I forgot
My destined lot
They played with my passion
It satisfied their emotion
They warned me in a strange voice
I avoided it coz it was my choice
Their behaviour made me realize
I was of no use-without price
They were happy to see me in trouble
I was fool I made my grief double
False love they showed to hide their hatred
I came to know this bitter truth then I regretted
My defeat lay in their victory
Their road depended on my journey
I thought it must be an ending
People say it is only a beginning
If it is only a start
Who will then try to thwart
I want to ask a question to them
Did they not feel any kind of shame?
If it is a beginning
It will never last for ending
They have started this game
But I will finish the same.

    My dear Vaibhav, I have no words to express my gratitude to you for your beautiful comments on my posts on this site. I value your scholarship and comments.

    I enjoyed your poem and your poetic skill. The poem flows very well with your thought. Everyone has once own perception of life. I have tried to respond to your thought in my own way in my latest poem, 'Innocence never dies'. When I was young I too had the views similar to you. But now the whole perception has a different orientation.

    Please continue showering your affection.

    hi Vaibhav, good job. i really like your topics. they are always different, interesting and thought provoking. this world is a cruel place to live in and so are the rules and regulations that we are bound to follow. where innocent is always crucified and ill intentions win. and in the middle of this we have to find a ray of hope to survive. well done and keep writing. take care (Report) Reply

    Innocence has been crucified since the begining of life-form, and in a swaggered way, as if it were an acceptable mantra of sorts, by those who in a
    bat of an eyelash, turn an acrimonious attitude towards anyone who is different from they....Jesus Christ, being a paradigm for this claim.
    Your work smacks of pasion, and conviction...two keystoned attributes of a successful writer. You structure is well your choice of vernacular that accurately conveys your thoughts, and message, with both power & poise.

    Your internal monologue reveals the polemic state of mind....deconstructing the events...and leaping into the reason, thought, truth, law...and the unquestioned status of priority and privilege....

    this is the way of the world… sentential [pithy statement of general truth]
    innocence is crucified not once but now we have lost the count…..has no beginning.. no end…
    It narrates a store of experience..
    ...through the argument a mental relaxation is called on…
    Well done….
