The Demands

If not join hands in reverence, then, does the raised voice demand

Instead of greeting the fortunes that were inherited, they are plundered

Slips off the slopes of ignorance into a greedy abyss

Unprepared, unthoughtful, unrefined- the coarse thoughts make it impossible

To exist along the tenets of existence; now, speak of broken promises

The canopy of falsehoods was never meant to nurture sanctified thoughts

Played with the ghosts, instead of looking for the stars and celestial message

Chasing chimera through the aberrations, aggravating the pain

Agonising moments needle the soul- heartbreak, pain, shattered dreams
