Thirst for revenge!

Thirst for revenge!

A Poem by Samhitha Mopati
"

A sorrowful description of the scenario at home, when a brave soldier is martyred in a war!

"
I saw the arms and weapons,

Surge into the soldier's blood,

Seizing the life within him,

Relinquishing him martyr,

Back at the warrior's home :

Silent prayers and sorrowful reckons,

Pacifying candles that are bright, yet dim,

Soon, the mutilated corpse arrives,

Crestfallen are the brave-heart's relatives,

His mother and wife  wail in fear,

The son of the house holds back a tear,

Awaiting for his father's revenge,

Oh when shall the young man's thirst quench ?

This reminds me a lot of like ancient civilizations like Rome or something like that. I'm not really sure why, but the picture I get from this is a man coming back to his home (obviously dead) on a platform covered in a white cloth with his armor still on. I think it's really cool, even though it's a sad subject. I like how you ended the poem with a question. It means that the reader can image how the story will end or a possibility for a sequel poem. Great job :)

The world that believe in the eye for the eye world. We will all end-up dead. Someone must stop fighting and seek peace. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

war is so rough on those left behind when a warrior has fallen...and we try to justify it by saying ---as dylan said "you don't count the dead when God is on your side"
but in the same song he said "if God really is on our side, he will stop the next war"

but only we can do that...we need peace and love.

not catastrophe, hate and grieving....

Very well written piece this one... You have described the pain of families that suffer.... the families of soldiers never want revenge... they want justice and respect.... search Sourabh Kalia... his father is still crying for justice for the brutality shown to his son's body......
