Bliss and Misery

By  Gouri Lekshmi Hari

Blissful was the heart soothing moonlight

Blissful was the night’s eternal beauty

After the wear and tear of the day

After the twitter and cackle of birds,

Blissful was the solitude

Blissful was the night sky

But, on earth nothing but misery survived

Bloodshed and tears!

Agony and fear!

Who is the cause?

The only answer – MAN

Revenge and hatred has made him blind!

Knowledge and power has made him a fool!

Amidst all this bloodshed and agony

Amidst this scene of bliss and misery

Stands man ashamed all the deeds he did

To conquer his selfish dreams!
