Avert~by Dipendra Kumar


 

 

Avert
——-

Standing by the bank of river
he wept bitterly for pain of large sea,
he wiped his tears
washed his hands, face on the waves of river
and went home smiling;
though tears of Himalaya was still flowing as river.
.
He is an ideal person,
he says “always keep smile to hide pains”;
.
To walking mourners
he even told the pain of large sea,
then blamed gods were always ruthless;
though God he knew, was a statue of temple.
.
‘Wanderers’ has been searching for Walking-God
who has neither sorrow nor grief – exactly like him;
who can collect lost tears from sufferings,
who can build the big globe from their tears,
for them or for their children;
though tears from clouds still falling to cleanse the air.
.
In this land of innocence,
here the air is greatly hot – –
– – birds starve for water,
– – soil starve for green plants,
– – house starve for family,
– – streets starve for destination.
.
As usual he wept bitterly for pain of large Sky
and demanded blood for sacrifice; war for peace
as soon his wish became true,
he wiped his tears
and went home smiling;
though bloods of innocence was still flowing as river.
