Agony of War

The shadow of Kalinga lingers on.
Crippled bodies
lie in unknown battlefields.
Neighbours and companions 
lost in time 
Empathy turns to prying eyes!


Pain and hunger,
Suffering,
The Earth in peril.
Killed in war?
The Nation's immortal sons
with their mortal remains long forgotten!


She weeps silent tears
and counts the lines of vanity
on a vain human visage.
The egoist,the egotist-
bask in the glory of
futile human battles.


To nothingness we fall prey
We win pieces of land
and lose ourselves this way.
The day draws near when
disaster struck shall we see 
only her stand strong.....
She is the Agony of War.
