Real Fear - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

Fear is not from devils!
Fear is not from beasts!
Fear is not from aliens!
Fear is not from reptiles
Fear is only from
fellow humans
who robs the peace
Nothing is safe in this
nonchalant society
Ruse and rubbish
rule most of rusty minds
Grudge and hatred
harbored on petty grounds
Sore to the mind
prosperity of others
never could tolerate
happiness of others
Minds pervert to cause
harm for no reason
naked truth never realized
in spite of efforts
master is the destiny
in deciding our lives
