Illusion of life continues...

Read Illusion of Life, part 1

Simplicity and Ignorance

i was strolling through the memory lane and i discovered :
all those roads of pains and sufferrings belong to the simplicity,
the ideology, the faith and conviction...

And all those roads of smile and happiness belonged to the ignorance,
when i was unaware of the hypocrisy,
i was ignorant of the poison tree underneath the dormant seedling;

Unfortunately,
the pains, the sufferrings and the tears were real...
the smile, the happiness and the pleasantaries were unreal...

Because: A seed of poison always yield a poison tree...
And drops of truth always leads to the ocean of truth...
And ...
True is the faith, belief and the simplicity
false is the hypocrisy and ignorance...

Amazing !

Dear Nusrat,

Brilliant...what a piercing poem - it is through such words and manifestation that we shall rise above and beyond to register our protests - through the weapon of pen and paper !

Don't you stop penning....!

Much regards,
Shaheen

Hope our pen proves itself mighty

Dear Shaheen,
You are right, pen is mightier than sword. Hope the words that emanate from the pens of all of us creates a powerful buzz and makes itself heard until a new world is evolved which grants the fundamental rights of women, the children and every impoverished.amen.
Love and peace
Nusrat

Hope

Dear nusrat1977, thank you for sharing your poem. What I see in your words is hope. Hope in the face of fear, despair, hurt and disappointment. Still hope, and light and truth.

Nusran, thank you for sharing your poem! I especially like the phrase "drops of truth always leads to the ocean of truth". To me that sentence expresses hope, hope despite the tears, suffering, ignorance...
