Love Thy Neighbour - Poem by vidyut chakraborty

They told us to forgive everyone
They told us to love all around
Get free from the inner evils:
We bow to Them as They are great
They are God.
But what Love remains in heart when
poor Iraqis are bombed by the Covetous Christians
what can They suggest when
Scientists inject animal gene in edible seeds!
These weariness forgive me, Oh my Lord,
I can not be Great with Merciful heart.
Please let me love those who suffered the wounds
Let me follow the lines of Burns and Tagore.
Love for all around is an impregnable impossibility
Forgive a warmonger may give birth
to a ruthless, merciless international community.
