Kill the Devil
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
     
A heap of neurological disorder
is today's state of social order
breeding bitterness and hate
news depicts this on every date
 
Ironical are the cultural gaps
propagated by divisive diktats
fostering prejudice and discrimination
that brazenly dishonor the women
 
Limping justice, inept policing
acrimonious people thus fleecing
under the nose of leaders corrupt
running governments of mistrust
 
Improper education, shrunken esteem
ideological bankruptcy so it seems
enslaved remains the frame of mind -
Why, brutal suffering be the daily grind?
 
This nonsense needs to end
we need to set up the trend
by awakening a force that’s revolutionized
making every neighborhood fortified
 
Mindset change is the need of the hour
building love and respectful character
giving space and value to each life
that kills the devil of hate malice

Comment well written although the poem sounds like lecture

Comment This is a major conceptual achievement.

The next major and a very difficult achievement is; its actual realization at personal and at universal level. Can we; for such achievement; accept and practice NAMASMARAN (JAP, JAAP, JIKRA, SUMIRAN, SIMARAN i.e. in essence; the REMEMBRANCE OF TRUE SELF); as a common minimum program?

Comment Mr. Raj Chowdhary leaves very little to comment or add. His words are so polished and thoughts so clear. We share similar feelings towards the events of the day and pray the dignity of every individual be equally respected by every individual.

Comment Along with mindset , we should learn to be mindful to others. An attitudinal change is required at grass-root level on how to become refined beings. Well-constructed poem indeed.

Comment Right on the mark!

Wrapped with selfishness we are headed towarde the path of peril. We need inner awakening and understanding of our responsibilities and obligations.

Keep these coming!

Comment Rhythmic...like the waves cascading down the clean beach; relevant message, lilting tones. Poetry made contemporary and musical by a New Yorker, still re-thinking India and its myriad problems from a Zen-position.

Comment Beginning with -
A heap of neurological disorder
is today's state of social order -
a brilliant concept expressed at its poetic best.

Comment Very well said. Kill the devil within self is perhaps the only way to protect the society!

Comment Great verse! True, there is a need to bring about an attitudinal change to "kill the devil."
