Purity

Purity

A Poem by Kajal Gulabani

When shadow of GREED hides, PURITY resides... 
Pure is the smile of a child, 
Pure is the cry of the deprived, 
Alas! TIME and its omnipotence, 
Has washed away the divine sands, 
Has empowered the fate of tomorrow, 
The glory of a wrinkled brow. 
Borne out of clay and shall be dug into it, 
Only stories to linger under the moonlit!!

Great poem. I like that you didn't only acknowledge the purity in the happiness of the innocent, but also in the sorrow of the neglected. Purity is simply a singularity of something, it doesn't have to be a positive emotion, as your poem shows. It also seems as if you were saying that the orthodoxy of religion will be replaced by the heterodox thoughts and philosophies of tomorrow with the lines:

"Alas! TIME and its omnipotence,
Has washed away the divine sand,
Has empowered the fate of tomorrow,
The glory of a wrinkled eyebrow."

Thank you :)
i really enjoyed this, the punctuation was punchy in all the right places along with the capitalization, it really sets up the themes of this work and allows the unwritten to leave its mark.

"Pure is the smile of a child,
Pure is the cry of the deprived, "
A wise person reaches out to the needy and give what they can. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.
