A LOOK AT LIFE-15~by SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY


 

 

A LOOK AT LIFE-15
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

The fallen martyrs
Fighting a lone battle 
In their solitary asylums
In a no man’s land
The unsung heroes
Of many wars
Silently languishing
In their lost paradise
Unnoticed 
Enduring the bitter agony of life
Where are those eyes
That suppressed the voice of innocence
Where are those ears
That never listened to
The sad panorama of human woes
Where are those hands
That deprived the poorest of the poor
A roof to stay under
And a piece of bread
To keep the body and mind together
Where is that mind
That desired everything for its own
And the pen
That subdued the wisest of the wise
For petty interests of some
For whom you lived 
Fought a battle of unequal
And made a hell of your life
Have left you all alone
To silently witness
The crumbling relics of your empire
To rethink and reassess
And wait for the unceremonious martyrdom
