'The Worst Betrayal Ever' - The Most Bitter Truth.

Where has our Guiding light gone,
Who was both around and within us.
Has the darkness overpowered us all or
Did we neglect to save the candle?
oh' the dusty northwind played a dirty game,
But We just closed our eyes to keep them clean.

We turned in our brothers by blood,
Who were roaring and prowling, walking proud
in two legs, holding a sacred heart high
and we got down to four for our nation's safety(?)
We stand today ashamed as Cannibal Cains,
wiping our mouth with a tricoloured flag.

Is it a beginning of a reverse evolution
Who engineered it or who is benefitted-
The Satan, whom we were fighting against?
The Candle who burnt away some dirty flies?
Nay! The Sun God, Who should have saved us all.
He, whom we thought we were drawing light from
He, who calls himself champion of oldest human species.

Alas we shouldnt have ignored the very truth -
'The aging Sun is mother of the black hole'

    The seeds of blood sown by
    Bagath Singh, Tippu, Jansi
    Bose, the13 year old brother
    Of Arobindo, Madrudu Brothers,
    Sepoys, Faces known and
    Many unknown too who died
    Was the Garden into which
    Gandhi came and plucked
    With his non-violent touch
    The Rose of Freedom.
    Never lose hope all this
    Innocent Bloodshed will
    Never be in vain - Another
    Gandhi will awake, arise
    And lead this world once agin
    Through the path of Peace
    Whiich is a straight and narrow one
    Full of hardship, humiliation
    Needing a strong heart
    To love the wholeworld
    And a stronger mind to
    Hold on to non-violence
    And lead us to a world
    Where there is no more War!

    indirect implication is beautifully brought out in this piece...the poem is structured
    very well which iam unable to...the incident from start to finish has become gruesome
