Compassion
by Shernaz Wadia
Bookmark and Share
 
You tried to sink my spirit
in the merciless surge
of your hatred - intense,
dark, venom dripping
Your careless whispers
tattooed my image
with obscene graffiti and 

with fabricated scandals
ripped off character
Injured, crushed, hushed,
a static pendulum, I hung on
by the threadbare skin of faith
Flotsam in the currents
of worldly shallows 

I’ve shattered the shame you 
coiled around my self-esteem
I wanted to hate you; instead 
I send you forgiveness and peace
From the freeways of love
Because you, I, we all are
Divine children of the Universe

Comment It is indeed gratifying to receive such an indepth comment and appreciation of the poem, Venkatesh. When readers can relate to the theme of a poem, there is nothing more to ask for. Thanks.

Comment Wonderful Poem !
Though the Poem can be read at different levels, my understanding relates to :

That Quintessential Capacity
Peculiar Only To A Woman
To Give Birth And Utterance
Again And Again
Despite The Distress of The Evening Shadows Telling
That The Dark Has Come.

Moreover, when Compassion becomes an Article Of Faith in this Temple of Life, what wonder even if Gods descend to taste the Nectar of Forgiveness.
