Do Not Weep

Do Not Weep

A Poem by ManasaC

Do not weep for the dead

For it is the living who are in dread.

Time may spin; seasons may change

Yet the mind is the same

Immured within the walls of deadly sins.

A child is born

Does it matter if it is a girl or a boy?

Oh yes, it does

In the little mind, the girl is never equal to a boy.

Wars are fought for peace

An irony that destroys humanity

 

Do not weep for the dead

For it is the living who are in dread

A home is now a house

For all relations and love are lost within time.

Does it matter what color the skin is?

When it will be nothing but grey….

Does it matter how beautiful a person looks?

When it will fade into the recesses of nothingness…

 

Do not weep for the dead

For it is the living who are in dread

Truth is just a shadow

While the Devil wears a mask.

Bad is always trustworthy

And good is just a facade

All that enlightened the life is now a distant memory

While the things that burn us are the reality

Lies and Hatred

Are all that within the masks of

Truth and Love.

 

Do not weep for the dead

For it is the living who are fading…

I agree.
"Do not weep for the dead
For it is the living who are fading…"
The above lines are true. The dead are resting and the alive are struggling. We must pray for the living to find peace and hope. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Critique: (Bad is always trust worthy) trustworthy - is one word

Review: First, seeing you are from India I want to complement on how well you write in English. Your word usage is spot on and your choice of words fit together with your topic very well. Now to the poem, it is almost in song format and it is lyrical in nature, it has both philosophical and emotional impact as well as a good moral. Standing Ovation! I give it 5 out of 5 Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap! Clap!
