letter to a warrior…

letter to a warrior

my dear friend
i do write
with a heavy heart
knowing
these words
can no longer
be read
by you
but
still i write
as night’s darkness
presses hard
against
the day’s light
to ask
how will we
tell the dead
that their sacrifice
has been forgotten
that the blood
shed
for freedom
has been bleached
by ignorance
and
intolerance
for
every dream
they held dear
and
every
ounce of flesh
left as payment
on a future
of hope
and
lasting peace

  1. very true, I often wonder what will the freedom fighters of India will think if they see today’s politicians or those young boys and girls who were killed trying to establish communism were able to see the erstwhile communist ministers of west Bengal!
