We Have To Start Afresh - Poem by Amitava Sur

We the humans have become so inhuman,
That humanity is at stake today.
Truth is forced to take the back seat
Being dominated by horrendous activities.

Poor moon, arriving in a star studded sky
Perhaps cannot smile anymore now
Seeing the humans,
Snarling instead of a smile with grace!

We are divided into so many pieces
By the name of religion, color of skin,
Rich or poor and in every discipline.

We are just striding backward now
With our egos and selfishness.

So filthy and injurious it is -
That now we have to start civilization
Again from the very beginning,
To survive and to proceed ahead
Keeping our heads straight and high.

    A tremendous and heavy message to acknowledge about our world and it's humanity, which has deteriorated quite a lot morally, ethically, and spiritually. We are drowning in decadence and evil, people are not finding ways to conquer it, seemingly not even caring, as this menace grows every stronger today. Very poignant and hard-hitting poem, Amitava. Thank you for your courage in bringing out these issues, once they have been opened up for discussion, solutions can be found. Great poem, Amitava. Thank you, RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Each word of the poem is so true. The last stanza is very thought provoking.. 'cause this civilization has reached on such a height of inhumanity that there isn't a way left than starting from the very beginning. thank you sir. (Report) Reply

    Very true. The present state of humanity can be described as under;
    She had to leave men and their milieu
    After failing to relieve them of selfishness.
    She persuaded all vices to leave the human mind
    She had to leave human as it's result final.
