English Poetry

Need not be reluctant to say

food is not

the main concern today,

as it used to be

in those old days .

 

Safety and security

for one’s wealth

and material possessions

have become a farce today;

Not a big threat, if you probe deeper.

 

Modesty and life of the weak

face imminent threat and danger

today, fearing each moment,

knowing not what holds in store

for each female on this wide land.

    was it not the same from the beginning, Sita was abducted the moment she fell alone?

    Very beautifully & modestly expressed is this very unfortunate worry & concern of the day
    “Modesty and life of the weak face imminent threat and danger today,fearing each moment,
    knowing not what holds in store for each female on this wide land.”

    S.N. Singh;
    Ravana was much more decent and
    he didn’t touch or disturb her while she
    was doing fast. Now, what to say about
    today’s rogues!! Thanks for appreciation.

    The growing insecurity cripples us from within.
    solemnly holding our fear, we step into the day following today…
    Medhini jee, very apt poem..
