Lost Wealth
by Dr. Madhavi Godavarthy
Bookmark and Share
  Did you hear?
The painful cries
Cutting through the night
I didn’t
The anguished voices
Drowned in the roar
Of high speed technology

How I wish
I and you and we heard
The brutal sounds
Of the iron rod
Of brutality and intoxication
Ripping apart decency
The bloody act
Demeaning dignity
Of a race that
Looks up to
A daughter…tomorrow’s mother

The nude reality
Unfolds with the dawn
Struggle for survival
The spirit alive
The spreading concern
Of the human soul
Breaks itself free
Be it water or fire
They say
It braves it all

Let’s hope
The sword of anguish
Will bruise the conscience
Of the big heads
You are gone
It’s now your spirit
That should haunt
Men’s malignant minds
Goodbye ‘braveheart’!

Comments on this Poem

Comment A heartfelt expression, indeed! Let,s hope that our younger generation will realise and feel the necessity to time and again remind themselves of the golden path to tread upon for a virtuous living and bring glory to our rich and varied culture, pledging that all Indians are our brothers and sisters! Let there be harmony amongst all and a healthy relationship binding one and all!

Comment Sad but stark reality expressed in the language of anguish and hope. Let's hope for a change in the monolithic mindset that thrives on parochialism, brutality and barbarism. Let's also hope that the progress in technology brings about a positive change in the decline of moral values and paves the way for the progress of soul.
