YES, WE ARE THE POETS….. / Poem by Soumyashree Bhattacharya

Poem by Soumyashree Bhattacharya

 

YES, WE ARE THE POETS…..

Yes, we are the poets…
We are the poets and that’s what they say…
with myriad tear drops incarnating
in our intensely incinerated eyes,
each night and every day…

Survivors of prolonged suppression
with pangs of betrayal, taking their toll…
We are the sunken hearts in despair
metamorphosed into unalloyed gold…
and finally shaped by destiny, as poets of the soul…

Our sorrows have copious outlets now…
forming springs and rapids of words in chain…
that flow abundantly into thousands of hearts
offering umpteen pleasure and pain…

Yes, we are the poets…
We are the poets of the heart, they say…
we have the power to create and dismantle…
with the magical prowess of our pens at play…

Yes, we have the freedom to share,
our inklings and our unbridled thoughts…
and we can change the hostile world,
by weaving back the gossamer of bonhomie,
which has been lost…

Yes, we are the poets…
the messengers of peace on earth…
deeply rooted are we, to the nation’s soil…
bearing the torch for tolerance and amity
amidst the mayhem and turmoil…

and sometimes, our lovelorn pens do say…
involuntarily, about our own woebegone days…

But still we preach love on earth…
Peace, faith and the doctrines of worth…
albeit fragmented are our very own hearts…
splattered and spilt are our goblets of mirth…
and soaked are our ever deprived souls, in the bounteous sea of dismay….
