The Holy Verdict

This poem is dedicated to Ayodhya verdict. If you find this poem meaningful, share it with your friends and spread the message of peace.

The day fades into the dark colors of a dimly lit sky,
As the waves gently brush against a firm rocky shore,
Reverberating the black and white events of a dark cloudy day,
That colored the innocent fates of a million Indians on roar.
I stare into the past as hope gets dim and curtains fall on the play…

They shout the infantile slogans of my love, my place,
They cry prayers of ‘O lord!’ it’s all in your name,
With the glory of warriors on a noble mission, they race,
And act like they never had love, it’s all for our place, our game.
I look behind to only find pyres of love, cries of pain…

And here they wait today, with those same swords stained in holy blood,
For a verdict, a wanting for victory on a land, a barren land,
‘Ayodhya! It’s ours; it’s ours’ all for god, all for good,
They wait, they pray, to a hollow deity, only to find words fallen bland.
I sit today and ask; will they find god? Will they find love? Will they ever find someone?

  1. An act of violence in the name of God becomes all the more shameful when it is state sponsored.Not only it is a breach of confidence for the one who suffers,but it also breaches the fine strand of faith and trust that an AAM AADMI has in the system.

    They may build a Mandir/Masjid…its more of an ego issue….a tower of babel…………

  2. You have painted the picture beautifully with words,
    carved out the feelings which are truly buried deep
    inside the conscience of an individual but are hard
    to admitted in public……..
    I hope people see the bigger picture

  3. Sanity put down in words!!!
    Message is so clear for everyone. I hope, it sinks down the grey cells and promulgates to the extent of tranquility.

  4. a very intense and senstive piece of writin….a very mature thought woven beautifully in words….loved it…sp. the last line which gives a lot 2 ponder about

    I sit today and ask; will they find god? Will they find love? Will they ever find someone?

  5. This is simply amazing. Probably one of your best I’ve read so far. The depth in the poem and the thought behind it just give a sense of how you are as a person- Deep, intense and wise.

  6. Nice composition Sushant. How much have we Indians grown up since 1992? After yesterday, I would say, higher and for the better. Hoped against hope that your verse wouldn’t come true … “And here they wait today, with those same swords stained in holy blood”… thank God, it didn’t 😀
