Why People Drifted From The Way Of Life

Rating: 4.0
Why flames of violence has erupted all around
Who has poisoned the minds of these budding hearts
Is it anguish of some witnessed inhuman tragedy
or hatred of some society’s misconduct
Whether these hands are devoid work of choice
or carried away by the satans of caste, religion and divisive acts.

Why this noble woman has picked weapons for destruction
Till yesterday was an embodiment of love peace and affection
Why today her hands are colored with strains of violent blood
limit of her tolerance might have been broken
By these feudal and the traders of mankind

Why these youths are playing with explosives and hand grenades
Why they are too passionate towards bullets and guns
Childhood might have been devoid of play, toys and love of mother
Left out humanity might have been exploited
By their employers and the crooked masters.

Mankind should be saved from this curse of violence
Elite, civilized and the good governance has to come forward
Every hand has to be engaged with the work of choice
Every heart has to be loved. respected and given the rightful place.

Terrorism and violence may pull the last curtain on the life of kalyug.
God may have to think thousand times,
Considering creation of men before making the new world
Or may remain contented with amoeba, plants and animal kingdom.

This is a very important question: Why? Why the violence? I guess we need a few more Mahathma Ghandi-like or Martin Luther King JR-like people. In the mean time each of us can start in our small circle. The more people make small differences through random kindnesses in their small circleof influence, the faster the world will be changed. I am a believer in world peace and I pray for it. Violence is sooo stupid. A wisdom revolution is on its way. A kindness revolution is on its way. Let us all enjoy being part of these revolutions. A very good poem, Santosh. Really makes people think.

SANTOSH - We are living in an increasingly violent age and some Young People are being taught that if they become 'suicide bombers' (e'g. the Twin Towers NY USA) they will attain PARADISE. This is a lie of the Devil. GOD created us in His image - to live HOLY & GODLY lives. SATAN the arch enemy of GOD & HUMANITY has poisoned peoples minds and created havoc in God's World. We need to be vigilant and fight against terrorism and warmonger and pray for and promote PEACE. Thanks for sharing - Your Friend - JOHN : o)

A painful life is starting from the system that failed humanity and compassion. The poet is telling the truth with solid sentences in very stanzas. Well done.
