where the writers are
Remain among
remain among

 

Along with the rest

 

Today is festival of lights

We shall celebrate it with joy and rights

Complete home will be illuminated

Well decorated with clean walls and pained

 

Whole of country is in jovial mood

Many in remote parts may be without food

Curse the crackers sound as cruel joke

Dream is visualized in thick smoke

 

Poverty is inherited with his blessings

Life is short of something and missing

Some are blessed with sun’s light

Some may be sleeping on sky’s dark delight

 

It has nothing to do with festival

They have definite message on their arrival

It is sincere wish to cross over to sunny side

From dark to bright even though the gulf will be wide

 

Millions of rupees may be spent just on big sounds

Sky may be lighted with sirens and star rounds

It will be filled with only smoke and gas all over

Poor may be watching it on ground without any cover

 

It has nothing to with somebody’s good fortune

They have everything an d delight it with favorable tune

Poor man’s belly will develop only cramps

H will sleep empty stomach much to the light of our lamps

 

If some of us can ignite little hope for future

Assure them of little hut as God’s creature

Some respect to assuage feeling and little care

He may surely be delighted with complete star

 

It may look ridiculous to advise or suggest

But it is long drawn battle and simple quest

If we can walk along with the rest

All the festivals and crackers may sound very best

I totally enjoyed this poem. I love the last two lines; "If we can walk along with the rest All the festivals and crackers may sound very best". Beautiful and so true! Thanks for sharing

Mehtaji, this is a real poem of the festival of light. There cannot be a festival when some have light and some others are denied of it. Real poetry comes out when one is moved by the sight of empty stomachs. Any kind of writing on apple-like face and jackfruit like belly indicates spiritual shallowness.
