Listen to the Truth

a poem by Ramana Tandra

Listen to the truth
The world you see now
A sharpened tip of poisoned sword
That stands erected on the ladder of deaths
.
Listen to the truth
Kindness has been in filtered
Through the layers of the heart
Do you know what remains?
Only the pulp made of malice
.
Listen to the truth
With the transformed targets
Humanity is leaking out
From the condensed obscurities
.
Listen to the truth
As well as the sins and curses
There born swords and thoughts
From the impregnation
That the vacuum conceives
.
Listen to the truth
See the agony
The perishability of the suffocated lives
Under the blanket of starvation
.
Listen to the truth
Now the world is ready
To conceal the glow-worm
Underneath the dust
Now the world is ready
To smear the stench
To the fragrant soil
.
Listen to the truth
This is the world that manipulates
The Sorrows as isms
.
Listen to the truth
It is the brutality the world reveals
