In Other Words – An Unneeded Thirst

An Unneeded Thirst

By: Meena Rose

Screen Shot 2013-10-01 at 6.54.14 PM
What is will no longer be
Yet legacies endure
Forever shifting and morphing
Against the tide of time.

The inevitable cycle of creation;
Mankind’s inheritance on its path
Of unyielding destruction;
A cyclone of waste.

Hopes, dreams and lives dashed
By unrelenting hate;
Earth herself has grown weary;
The metallic tang of blood.

A forever rusted rouge
Upon lips that once upon a time
Comforted you in your sleep
Leaving trail marks of bliss.

Nice begets nice;
For some that us not enough;
A prayer for peace then and
A candle for understanding.

In Other Words – Drum Roll, Please

Drum Roll, Please

By: Meena Rose

cropped-img_2113.jpgCongratulations are due -
The one who has managed to:
Extract beauty out of chaos;
Liberate infinity from finite shackles;
Find the silent breath amidst the din;
Become the voice for those who can’t and won’t;
Keep the light on in a sea of dark;
Become the window in the wall of apathy;
Surrender to this life task unconditionally.

Congratulations are due -
The poet, the artist, the photographer;
The writer, the musician, the singer;
The activist, the teacher, the sculptor.

In Other Words – The Blame Game

The Blame Game

By: Meena Rose

Every generation enumerates
Sins of its fathers
The verdict of archaic
A foregone conclusion

Forethought, afterthought, any thought
It is hard to tell if any took place
A rite that is adhered to without questions
Feet traverse the well worn path

Paperless evidence and magnetic memory
Iron clad and fool proof
Except for those moments alone
The fog of doubt sets in
