Those Who Have Not Arrived Yet - Poem by Amitava Sur

Those who have not arrived yet
Please don’t endeavor to appear
On this earth of nowadays, anymore.
What will be the use by increasing the number
Unnecessarily, amongst this crowd of
Either inactive or helpless people,
Or else to become another Frankenstein?

Remember, you’ll not be able
To proceed even a single step with your choice,
They’ll not allow you excepting being forced
To walk in a path as you'll be guided by them.

Truth and justice being disobeyed here
Being overpowered by dishonesty.
What will be the use by increasing the number
Unnecessarily, amongst this crowd of
Either inactive or helpless people?
Amitava (11.9.2015)

    I can sense the frustration in your feeling mind! But we have to accept everything in our stride! Sometimes we feel baffled by the fate that awaits our progeny! If the present crises advance at this rate, it is natural for us to feel that those who haven't taken birth on this planet are fortunate! Great write, Amitava! (Report) Reply

    hahaha so true - given a choice i think those poor ones will definitely prefer to stay in moms womb as those are the best days they ever had -
    good one highlighting the helpless state of all human beings on this earth which has now been transformed into a cruel n selfish abode by our very own fellow human beings!
    a good write Sir.

    Over population, limited resources & everything kept well out of reach from us. We’re all becoming like drowning fish in drying stagnating pool of slime. I see your point. (Report) Reply
