Corruption

The old man looked around the “cremation ground”
Ashes all around
Dust on the air
An eerie silence engulfing the surroundings
The old man – wrinkles around his face -
Looked around
 
He saw:
Ashes all around -
Truth wandering to find the soul;
Lies – blatant lies – vying to win over one another;
People, living in a world of illusion;
Souls wandering aimlessly.
 
He saw:
Dust on the air -
Relationship trying to reach out with futility;
Blackmailing the soul;
Desires walloping with impurity
Hate running around like a free-wheeling child.
 
He saw:
An eerie silence engulfing the surroundings -
Silence of words and expression;
Exasperation filling the air;
Helpless felt around;
He felt mankind withering
 
Wrinkles around his face
He looked past –
Dug deep into his soul –
Exploring the possibilities of survival –
To make people see the reality –
Of Truth, Relationship and Affection
 
Alas! He felt lonely –
Not feeling helpless –
Not leaving these happenings to “fate” –
He decided to gather “more like-minded personnel”
Who will bring rays of hope to the forefront.
 
Let the world live in peaceful harmony.
