Shattered Dreams - Poem by Jaishree Nair

Behind the curtain of darkness;
Silhouetted by ghostly weirdness;
Innocence of childhood bruised;
The wailings of torture suffused;
Unheeded and unnoticed by the creator confused......

The man eaters gorging on human flesh like scavenges.....
Fugitive and devilish rangers...
With evil minds in grotesque frames;
Not a quantum of humanity to claim;
The so called humans without hearts......
Perhaps God has forgotten to add the part......

The funeral pyre of the cherished dreams and hopes of the tiny one
dampened by the tears of the loved one.....
Wings cut they are left behind
to drink the bitter juice of life!
Lamenting-raising their hands to the Almighty-
questioning the justice of so cruel a fate! !

    I like your poetical wording.The only thing I wonder about with american and middle east's poets is their reference to gods.Poets iin Greece and hence in western civilization did not usu to see gods, they created theit own gods theit society needed.Do our societies today need them? May be in America and Middle East they still need them. (Report) Reply

    A thought provoking poem with some genuine doubts in mind, where no answer is found yet. And possibly, no answer will be found ever for some particular questions we have, in deed. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    You have once more taken up the same theme! Dreams shattered, hearts bleeding and future turned bleak, these innocents defiled at a tender age, live a life in death! Who can atone the sins of the raving beasts who callously broke the brittle minds! ! Powerfully presented! (Report) Reply
