Let Him Sleep - Poem by Subbaraman N V

Let him sleep
In joy and peace
Let him keep
Cool with ease!
He knows not the world
Let him not be disturbed
When he gets old
He is bound to be perturbed!
From his world of toy and joy
To that of strife and war
From his world of love and peace
To that of jealousy and violence
Sea of difference
Ocean of variance!
Let him sleep
In joy and peace
Let him not be disturbed
From his world of toy and joy!
While awake
Feed him 'courage'
Courage to face the scourge
Scourge of war
of poverty
of inequality
of violence
of lawlessness
of negativism
of injustice!

While awake
Feed him 'love'
Love that begets love
To make him love
The mankind
The bountiful nature
The lovely birds and animals
The bright stars and the sky
The beautiful plants and flowers
The enchanting dews on the grass!

While awake
Inject in him strength
Strength of mind and body
Strength of intellect
Strength of spiritualism!

Strength to create a new world
World in which
Divine love will live
Pure honesty will prosper
Universal brotherhood will prevail
Cozy peace will conquer
Majestic justice will preside!

    not all men face such problem, there are some men who are really gifted with bountiful love of their parents, wife and kids, for those who are yet to get, only god can answer their prayers by gifting them with better love life.. just can't blame poverty, we need to work towards it to eradicate it.. nice poem with direct words touching the concept...
