Liberation Seeker - Poem by Tribhawan Kaul
The following poem is the translation of my hindi poem Mumukhshu from the book Sab Rang
at the fag end of life
standing & waiting
to turn into history
still in two minds
thinking what to say
and to gift
on its birthday.
Nuclear holocaust & nuclear proliferation?
warning on depletion of ozone?
class and color struggle?
devalued or hollow speeches
on environmental degradation?
the human race
which has lost its sense
in the murky world of
separatism, terrorism & extremism
playing into the hand of cancer, AIDS and drugs
yet wearing a mask of humanity and concern
weeping for fellow human beings.
twentieth century smiled
an aura surrounded it
springing new hope
after all why?
twenty-first century be birthed by it
why it shouldn’t allow 21st century
to stand on it own foundation
let 21st century build itself de-novo
without the crutches of 20th century.
So without notice
20th century found solace into oblivion
into time and history
allowing 21st century to emerge
with a new dawn
waiting to liberate itself
from its previous deeds
