Tale of tears

Tale of tears

A Poem by Bala Gorthi

My rolling tears are here to tell

We are just human, know this well

 

My heart here pours

When I see agony of yours

 

My chest bloats with blurring sights

When my country girl scales new heights

 

My soldiers turn martyrs, wearing flagged attires

Anger boils with those hot tears, seeing their funeral pyres

 

Many strong women ridiculed for fighting alone

Those unshed lamenting pearls silently atone

 

Heinous crimes and people’s miseries rush us out

Human trafficking and exploitation gush us to bout

 

Saline everywhere; Saline blood; saline tears

Make every living as our dears

 

But:

 

 How come these pathetic saline tearful feasts

Not shaken merchants of crime and ruthless beasts?

Hey, predators and monsters don’t you have fears?

Don’t you think all are yours?

Those at the top - whose sons never seem to end up at frontlines would be slower to start or to prolong suffering if it came home to roost.
The poet feels the pain of humanity in the face of injustice which prohibits us all from reaching our potential.
I read today that the 8 richest people in the world have more money than half of the entire world's poor. :/

Well written piece Bala.

A heart that feels the pain of others reflects a very compassionate personality.
Unfortunately a few evil and powerful people spread trouble and the lives lost are just mere numbers.
I pray that things get better this year

I appreciate your visit and kind words, Tony.
I agree with what you said.
a nice wiring on love for humanity that inspired me much. I do not have word to express the emotions for humanity that you have worded in this piece. I love these two lines: Saline everywhere; Saline blood; saline tears
Make every living as our dears

Nice job. Keep it up.

Best
