To The Troy - Poem by Rafiqul Anowar

-And when my friends asked me,
'What will you do, if she'll come and whispered a Word
For that you were starving for thousand years? '
I replied 'I will burn the Troy for the Second time.'
Then Helen asked from the book of ancient memory,
'Why do you say so?
Why do you longing for miseries and blood of people
When you feel love for a woman? '
The Troy that bleed the bodies of Trojans and the Greeks'
I knew the story, I replied.

Agamemnon wasn't for Helen but for Troy, he came;
Menelaus was not for but Revenge and Pride;
Achilles was not for but Power and Victory;
Odysseus was for loyalty and promise...
Hector was for his country and worship of God,
Only the Paris,
He took the courage for his love and affection for Helen.
Through the confusion and conspiracies by the Gods and
Goddesses, the war ran for ten years.
And then Troy had burnt,
There built no Troy after that - this I know
As an wise man said to me once,
'The world is cruel my friend,
No man had ever died for their Cruelty and wrath,
But on earth, Men died many times for their love for Mankind.'

I said all those to my friends, and they are gone:
“I am not the Prince nor a King or the General.
I am a wounded soldier”
Realized then:
For love, I can never burn the Troy,
In love, let’s built thousand Troys in imagination.
