Poems by Aarti Mittal

 

They stand smiling

From ages and ages
Talking among themselves
Satirically
God created man
Bestowed with brains and beauty
Gifted with love and humanity
Embellished this earth with his treasury
Made this world just like his heaven
Away from all miseries

Aah !!!!
But human his creation
Witty and smart
Made this heaven a Mart
To value the valuable valueless
Staked every grit of this beautiful creation
To become the God
Manifesting devastation
With greed and hunger
For power demonism
Killing love compassion and humanity
Ethics morales and values
Embarrassing his own creator
We witnessing all helplessly
All this pain and agony

Am thankful to our creator
If this is brain
Then we are blessed to not have been trained
To use it
To shatter this heaven…….

 

Inspired by Mandour Saleh Hikel sir

Your pain
Your anguish
Your rage
Your helplessness can be felt
My words said to the eyes
The cries of the innocents
Can be seen in your eyes
Which are stoned
By the tears
That crave to roll ,
But are
Dead alive
The screams with drumming bullets
Echo in my ears
My heart pounds
My heartbeat yells
Wishing to be dumb or silent
Lay numb

But yet dares
To turn to Ashes
And mingle in the air
The devils breathe

I pray thee
Almighty
Bless me with courage and strength enough
That I walk into the devil’s heart
If he has
To yell on top of my voice
That he is shaken
” Weren’t you a child born innocent !
Or were you born dead
Or born savage and hostile
That you have killed the humanity in you
The love and compassion in you
Weren’t you born that innocent asking for a warm hug
Weren’t you the same young kid
Craving for lullaby
Expecting love and delicacies
Weren’t you

Then why
Why do you shatter the environment,
Why do storm the bullets
In the tempest of your rage
And greed for your identity
To be identified as
The unwanted wanted
The identified to be unidentified
Why !
Why you wish to rule the world
That you insanely empty
To rule or
To be ruled by devils

Just once
Just once
Step into my world of
Love humanity and compassion
You’ll find a heaven of your own…..
