Open Link Night # 204

A fragile thread hanging
is all I see, between
the fine line, dividing
rational discussion from
a thoughtless mob mentality
of fragile vanities
and mountain size egoes
intolerant against any thought,
that dares to oppose.

A shred of hope, quickly losing
when I see, leaders selling hatred
like throwing pieces of meat to dogs
with us lapping it up, no second thoughts
tearing each other to pieces
with least regard for other’s pain.

Ask your God, recheck your faith
Ask yourself, before it’s too late
At the end, we all bleed red
As a human or monster, depends
on the choices you make
Ask, before you loose faith, in yourself




I am a Protector
of my values
of gender equality
of religious tolerance

I am a Seeker
of kindness in others
of justice for powerless
of truth in this democratic mess

I am a Soldier
refusing to sit like a weak fool
refusing to be the one protected
refusing to surrender my freedom

I am just a someone
with rebellious thoughts in head
angry at being born to feel out of place
in this world of hatred and farces

I am a human-being
with a part to play in ecosystem
a part that seeks to nurture, not destroy
a part to share our planet equally

The Onus is on ME

The Monster named Religion

Loosing faith on human race
looking at the hatred spreading
in every direction I see
what kind of species are we
that tortures a fellow being
on an illusion of so called faith
a devil by the name of religion
like a virus affecting brain
turning men into maniacs
why is it difficult to understand
at the end we all bleed red
we all are human beings
that is the most basic tie
God, if he does exist at all
never created the boundaries we follow
of land, of resources, of faith,
it is we who created them
it is we who defend them
but at what cost
that’s made us monsters at heart
does anybody realize
this religion will destroy our world

P.S. unfortunately inspired reading the Rohingya genocide..
