The Strike!

.
Shattered Glass and broken sticks
Torn placards, touched in red ink
Shouts and screams, cries of fear
Mind in turrmoil, unrest in the air
Rights hard to obtain, bear pain
Fighting hard, destroy and face
No reason at sight, to protest
Just protest, lives at stake

In the midst, blood dripping from souls
A hurried quest for meaning
Of Life, Of reason or to exist
A blind rage, a vision, singular
Rushing in turbulence, in unison
False claims of a horizon; new
All yearn for change, changes radical
Struggling in thought, in action.

While peace settles and wounds heal
All minds are of cryptic state
Martyrs in outlook, heroic in taste
A clouded mind, weakness in brain
Cowering in fear, the aged ask
What the gain, for all the pain
Tears burst at the look of scorn
Always think of your next meal!

Slowly all the losses appear
Over the mind, the clouds clear
In regret, in grief, the brain speeds
A slow awakening to life and normalcy
As time glides across, life blooms
New thoughts arise, changes desired
The old blood, now aged and aged, now souls
Shattered Glass and broken sticks.

A very generous poem....i was just saying saying that we have become addicted to the idea of protesting tht we protest at the slightest reason. Well described poem Srijith!! The oicture reminds me of the old time protests too....

So you are a poet too?

Srijith Unni said...

@scribblez : Yes, there were basically a lot of threads running in my mind, and had to voice my feelings about this hypothetical strike.

@marthyan : Thanks a lot for your appreciation and for coming by.

@Deepak : I am a struggling young wannabe poet. BTW, what do you mean by poet too? what else have you put across my name ?? ;-)
