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!
