BANGALORE, May 19, 2013- An identity crisis arises out of a complexity of fuelling further ends than the end itself. Is it for better or for worse?
The mellowed earth smells eerily funny,
When aggressors plod gently in tandem,
Brandishing placid sands to play along in unison,
Single failures are forgotten and beget hope,
While unity stands a mighty fortress for change,
Shh! A resonant tune sounds for a march of whispers,
Whispers that forewarned them to be forearmed,
They march armed with a single weapon: unity.
Toils were impaired; facing disaster with this sole weapon,
Branding them no better or worse, for ‘worse’ was for ‘better’,
External threats come; they chug along in familiar spirits,
Randomness is viewed with large grains of salt,
Dousing the fiery venom in the Elixir of Life,
If we fight for a cause and lose- our cause wins our fight,
Gobbling up the combative defeats and laying it to rest,
Travails are eased into by the ongoing travels,
Clutter management cracks up-Cobwebs hit, melodies strung,
Defying the nuggets of wisdom-that were laid bare,
Peace- A hypothetical eternity where ends are attained,
And means justified, fuelling further ends than the end itself.
Justice- Everyone’s craving makes it a victory with few winners,
Climax- Naturalism looks bitterly into Romanticism’s eye.
