a poem by Sathya N K

Once the land of pious,
Where sacrifice, serenity prevailed with ethics!
Humanity coupled with compassion
Reigned supreme in our nation

Today the country is wedged
In crime, fraud and carnage
As Future descend in a grubby tub
With value for life at its ebb

Once noble souls transpired
Propelling dignified thoughts and actions wide.
Prosperity, peace and happiness
Showered all over the land and skies

Today thick black clouds hover
With selfish politics, poverty, piracy and fear
Floods of egoism, hatred, anger and brawls.
Exist everywhere leaving peace on trails.

Awaken, else it would be too late!
