Theme: Advice


A message to the common people
lead a life, teaching to be simple
don't pollute your mind with politics
that can only make you more soporific
reason you find too brittle to hold back
with your all sweet and lovable relation
getting soured bitterly for resorting to escape
from truth you are loath to honestly convey
because now a pawn you are made of
shelter you a worm inside your body
gradually it would devour you completely
without your least knowledge of danger
sold is your conscience to certain symbols
to the masses
you are posed as a rebel
empowered are you with borrowed power
you are an eclipsed moon now not seen clear.

Comment Exactly... superb "Metaphor" has been used,, people are an eclipsed moon, no wonder however they try to eradicate themselves as soul-eater, they can't eradicate corruption.....They gratify power not to enrich mango people of our society, but to rebel and steal away the conscience. ENGROSSED COMPOSITION......
