Hey Ram…1947 and Hey Rinatina…2007

a poem by Sakthi Ravichandran

The pounding, unrelenting
Lessons… never ending pace,
Now fast ascending for all,
Destiny, impending shame,
Forever our legacy greed, the
Forbidden choice when all we
Were to do was care with one
Great voice! to love, to shepherd
All of mother earth a birthright
So simple it’s all in the eyes of
The child humans, animals, important
Principles “what now?”, the question
Lingers… look around! action
Is compelling the race is fast
Upon us! What ending awaits
The telling?
