... The Hidden Eyes... - Poem by Aastha Uppal
Was it a howl or warning from God
Was it the outcome of reversal of nature's laws
Whatever it was, the world had faced a great loss
The fierce wind will stop
The stormy waves would also halt
But will those innocent eyes hidden in the sand
Ever stop to watch.
Gazing towards the open sky
Still awaiting someone would come and try
To quench his thirst and comfort his cry
But none could alter the game of destiny
And so another pair of innocent eyes turned down.
Nothing new to the custom
Was he submitted in the lap of motherland
But..............Will those questions in his Universal eyes come to an end?
Or ask who has the courage to answer
As to what his fault was..................
DEDICATED TO THE CHILDREN WHO LOST THEIR LIFE DURING THE TSUNAMI TRAGEDY.
