Horror of Conflict
by Hillol Ray
Bookmark and Share
  Beauty of silence can be shattered
with the little crack of a ‘hostile sound’
And may cause the panic in a quiet moment
that can now always be found!
From a schoolyard to the busy airports,
the ‘reign of terror’ creates the news
And awaits the verdict in modern courtrooms
saturated by the judges’ views!

Today, technology has brought in physical comforts
but taken away the peace of mind
And while moving to the next millenniums,
increments in lawsuits we can readily find!
Tolerance seems like an aged issue of the past
and prefers to be overlooked all the way
While the conflict protrudes from every corner
to make the “home of happiness” sway!

In our modern society, horror finds a “niche”
in every step that we like to take
And warns through a lawsuit,
even though the allegations could be really fake!
Now spiritual value is overcast with material value,
like the cataract of the eye
And the ‘horror of conflict’ seems to be ‘running’
until the day we may all die!

Living “beyond the means” is a “social motto”
and harps daily on the same string
To overshadow the reality throughout the year,
from a hot summer to early spring!
The ‘teeth of conflict’ snoop around us
to destroy the value of a family tie
and paints the mind with a different dye!

The horror of conflict today sits in contrast
to our primitive or tribal past
When the values of “friendship” reigned supreme
and surely made it last!
The irony of our society now looms
on the hands of lawyers causing the terror
While the deep pockets blind the rules
and excuse themselves from their error!!
