Would You Care To Remember?

 

would you care to remember?

 

WOULD YOU CARE TO REMEMBER???

 

For once, would you care to remember

our lives in the more simple times?

when we considered it the utmost honor

to be hailed as mother earth’s sons,

and stood shoulder to shoulder fighting all obstacles

which were thrown haphazardly in our rugged paths.

 

For once, would you care to remember

the halcyon days spent under canopy of skies?

when we wove a dream and in it aspired together

to one day reach and touch the horizons’ stars

before we realized our potential and woke up from slumber

and began our never ending journey of conquests.

 

When did the crystal clear lakes of love evaporate

and luxuriant layers of trust disintegrate?

as we unwittingly let the ruthless weeds of selfishness

outgrow the blooms of tenderness in our hearts,

and decided erroneously that we no longer needed one another

while resorting to the isolation of iron walls.

 

Blindfolded by the sheen of power and arrogance

we then began to soil earth’s pristine sands,

as pages and pages of history got soaked in

the blood spilling stories of our combats,

when we threw the bond of brotherhood to the winds

and implemented cruel strategies of destruction.

 

Come, let us place our hands over hearts

and listen to the gentle voice of our conscience,

which tells us not to burn in these wild fires of hatred

refuting so unconcernedly this life’s purpose,

so, without turning back let us walk hand in hand

and stay united as our humble recompance.

    If only we could hold onto the wonder and enthusiasm of our youth, before we became tainted by an uncertain world. Change is inevitable but we can choose to see the beauty rather than the darkness and in that there is always hope for our future. Nicely penned dear Anjana, and thank you for the link and compliment, it is very much appreciated. Take care.
