Unanswered - Poem by Joyraj Waikhom

I do guess, and still dared to guess
if what I think is alright.
Questions fly in my mind,
Thinking why all around me fight.

Questions remain still unanswered;
But still searching with the time
To save these people,
From the grip of crime.

Phobia controls all and me
staying in this state of instability,
Everywhere and all around me
is busy showing their ability...

Their abilities to destroy
One’s peace of mind
With no care to see
If everyone, around, is fine

Everyone needs the answer
Much more to do something
And so better wake up
unless we are left with nothing

    I just wanted to say that ur poem was very thought pervoking. The poem made me question my ability and those around me ability to look for the answers to questions & problems. And I came to one grand conclusion from myself.

    Questions don't need to be answered all of the time for the answers given may not be what should be, but the persons own reflections of what they want to be. My life has been about looking for answers from others when it should have been about creating my own conclusions that in turn may create answers for others. Your poem has given me new mindfull poetry to be relayed in the future.
    Thank-You FYI: I have posted another poem I have called 'AFRAID' please read and give your opinion..
