Rugged Refugee
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar
Bookmark and Share
 

Nestled among the woods
the countryside along the border
between the countries
has serenity of peace and amiability
in hearts of the people
rooted to the soil.

 

Just down the heaven on the earth
some, once forced to flee
evicted from their joyous haven
take refuge and shelter
in a haunted camp 
and breathe in constant fear
of the mad men in arms
that don't know the language
of humanity,
blind to social harmony;
while those in refugee camps do know
love, fellow feeling and patriotism 
as they keep exercising their sensibility
to feel the essence of humanity.


Trauma and agonising pain aside,
their lifeline is quite akin
to that of the cities or of rest 
of the people, huddled 
for they know how to live their life
even in the face of death
always hovering around them
in the disguise of starvation,
dehumanizing and cruel treatment 
usually meted out to them
in their own land of the country!
