The Rebellion! / Poem by NilavroNill Shoovro

Poem by NilavroNill Shoovro


The Rebellion!

Empty dreams are howling around
Love has taught me how to sustain pain

The headlines are crying for revenge
Peace treaties only prolong the game

No matter how you see the picture
Your voice would be lost in vain

Or you can dance along with the time
To get the limelight and the fame

There is no fairytale that I can narrate
To give you joy or boost up the hope

Nor I can dishearten you with the facts
True, yet naked in shame down the roads

Or you can still play Nero’s violin
If you wish, you have the scope

But for me, I’m alone: Empty dreams
Are dancing around the silent swords!
