Poems by Manthena Damodara Chary



She lived in an orphanage
As a girl at her young age
She was held in marriage
Then sixteen was her age

She worked as a labourer
To fulfil her great hunger
She did blistering labour
To lead her life in squalor

She gave birth to two girls
Who were peerless pearls
Her toil brought her tears
Fuelling all her great fears

She decided to end her life
To put up with sordid strife
Time for death was not rife
As two kids cried for her life

She was fired with ambition
To seek learning with notion
Carrying her kids to the town
She found her desire’s ignition

She worked as a tailoress
Her kids wanted her caress
They cherished her kindness
Her learning was in progress

America was her destination
Her goals needed dedication
Her industry showed fruition
With indomitable inclination

She made earnest endeavour
To be a software entrepreneur
She rose above a tide in valour
Like a phoenix in all grandeur

Superb success was in access
For her striving without stress
Key Software firm was success
In Phoenix a centre of business

She inspires all with her story
Making great speeches in glory
Jyothi Reddy keeps her category
Tidying up tremendous tapestry

Her story shows the win of will
Determination can guide us well
Tireless toil can always fare well
Quelling crises with winsome will

You are the existence of the word
You are the essence of the world
How should I claim it as my world
As I discover myself in your world?

I can never own wealth of wisdom
Every thing is seen in your kingdom
The universe is meant for freedom
You often create things at random

You are a manifestation of miracle
You produce any striking spectacle
Your grace removes all our obstacle
How can I interpret all your oracle?

I intend to script my stunning story
Your existence still seems mystery
How can we create our own history
When events are found in your story?

When we all are at dawn
We keep the spirit down
Fuelling the fear of dusk
As it gets dreadfully dark

We all live in fear of death
Without keeping our mirth
Time ill-spent is time lost
Time well used is our best

We can ignite our insight
To lead all our lives bright
How can we sight the light
When our hopes turn blight

We should keep liveliness
For our living in loveliness
Exploring all cheerfulness
Tidying up thoughtfulness

If you are always blissfully bold
To adorn with love all the world
Love represents your own world
Love is a sweetener of the word

You can own the wings of romance
To enjoy flight of fancy in elegance
Deity dwells in delightful dalliance
Eternity embraces love’s endurance

Time never triumphs over loyal love
It finds itself identified with its glow
Felicitous feelings can always flow
To beaming bliss of breeze in blow

Lofty love can emanate its radiance
Beautifying existence with brilliance
Flowering feelings radiate fragrance
Entwining two hearts with elegance

Bestower of gorgeous gift of spiritual strength
Benefactor of the entire world at a great length
Blissful donor of contentment as great wealth
Buoyant presenter of purity as essence of mirth

Let me undertake actions under your influence
Magnifying pleasure of people for sustenance
Genuine generosity should mark my existence
Ending all apprehensions with final confidence

Let me heal all the festering wounds of hearts
With my consummate compassion in all parts
Let me prevent violent attacks of envy’s darts
Rendering assistance to creatures of all sorts

Energize me with all your enormous enthusiam
To establish peace in the universe with altruism
Widen my wisdom for propagating monotheism
Ending religious conflicts with humanitarianism

(My glowing tribute to Ramappa,the sculptor whose statues speak sonorously of speechless splendour at Ramalingeshwara Swamy Temple at Palampet in Jayashankar Bhupalpelly District of Telangana in India. Yesterday I visited the temple along with the members of my family and was fascinated by the sculptural grandeur of Nandi (the Cow) there before the visit of Sree Ramanjaneya Temple built by all our residing relatives of Nallabelly )

A stone speaks of stunning splendour
When it represents gorgeous grandeur
Carved in.ultimately awesome wonder
Seated majestically on pedestal yonder

The sculpture got my two eyes dazzled
Its charm had my mind entirely razzled
Its peerless perfection kept me puzzled
Such statues left my bright hair grizzled

My worded wealth often finds reticence
To depict its glory in ecstatic eminence
Such statues display their magnificence
Standing unique in speechless elegance

It has overwhelmed the vagaries of time
Feasting avid eyes with its story sublime
Agelessness always characterises gleam
Greeting spectators with its blissful beam

It melts marvellously the metallic menace
Conquering over all onslaughts with grace
Its rocky status mocks all shaky substance
Streamlining the essence of our existence

It evokes all emotions as an ageless sage
Standing out in resplendence without rage
It glances in all gaiety turning many a page
It enjoys all felicitous freedom at any stage

Inscriptions illustrate imaginative glory
Of emperors who made hideous history
Employing skilled sculptors for imagery
In sculpture to represent all God’s story

Emperors exhibited abhorrent animosity
Cutting off hands of artisans with cruelty
After all statues were carved with felicity
Their hearts fuelled flames of criminality

They deified themselves as gods on earth
Depriving all innocent people of their mirth
All statues of gods were made with wealth
Robbed to estrange people from harsh truth

God’s presence is always felt in all the world
Learning to realise Him in all forms manifold
We should find all Our worship blissfully bold
In the entirety of our world disowning the old

Boldness contributes to breadth of our view
Ushering in an era of sublime serenity anew
Religions require a rarely remarkable review
To seek peace bidding religious wars adieu
