These Words Of Mine

Updated: Feb 5

By Vijay Kumar


These words I struggle to write

Scattered like wilted flowers in meadows

Splattered like blotches 

Of needless blood on snow

 

Can they revive a stream, 

Flowing mid’st the glens offering life?    

Can they move anyone, 

To ponder right?

Would they urge poignance, 

To tear an eye?

Would they be too weak, 

To save a soul?

Would they mend a heart, 

To restore love?

Would they provoke a conscience, 

To rise above?    



I wonder if we’d ever learn 

I wonder if anything I have, 

Will do any good in this world of ours           

I wonder if children 

Can be willed to grow right

I wonder if a traumatized child 

Can have its innocence restored 

I wonder if wars 

Can be stopped by a widow’s tears  

I wonder if revolutions 

Can be without death

I wonder if starving children 

Can know the joys of a fulsome meal

I wonder if the sick 

With a gentle touch, can heal 

I wonder if a destitute family in tatters 

Will ever see their future shine

I wonder if god decides 

That despots not be born

I wonder if there will be 

Jobs, food and shelter for millions 

And not for a few Unicorns 

With their unholy billions

I wonder if we can 

Stop a river from drying 

And keep land fertile, 

And it’s crust not crying

   

I wonder when 

Hope and peace will reign supreme

When suffering will be 

A forgotten bad dream

  

I wonder ever if 

Any good can come

Of these words of mine


Possibly not, 

Since they may not be ever heard 

And are too weak

To move a the world so marred


Heaven and hell are here 

And will keep their place

Till such love and peace bestrew    

Keep trying without ado

By Divyani Singh जब भी तेरी याद या आएगी ना चाहते हुए भी... तेरे साथ न होने की कमी हमें रुआंसा कर जाएगी हंसते हुए होठों पर उदासी को लाएगी खुशी से सुर्ख आंखों में भी तेरी याद की प्यारी नामी दे जाएगी । ज
