Poetry for Peace : Jyotirmaya Thakur

Jyotirmaya Thakur


“People, raise a war for peace”, I say,
Bring back all humanity under one roof,
Future generation, why should they pay?
Greed, hatred, intolerance is enough proof.
The power lies in the hands of few,
Who have gone astray to worship the Devil,
God’s children unite like drops of dew,
Wash away violent blood and level.
The ground for a heroic angelic race,
So kindness, compassion empathy dwells,
While evil fails at destructive pace,
Let the divinity awaken to cast a spell.
Once again Earth’s holy spirit beckons,
Like phoenix rising from ashen grave,
And saves millions of orphans forsaken,
From the bloodshed of the universal hate wave.
Or the world will come to annihilation,
And then there will be no retribution,
Let the mediators of peace be aroused,
The distant dream of one world can be found.
Let six continents be wonders of the Universe,
Without any discrimination of diverse,
Let bugle of renaissance fraternity resound,
Like Nature reinventing itself with universal bonds.

[ From my book -Symphony of Peace]



On Eid when the whole world was celebrating
While in Gaza bombs were dropping
As a whistleblower in full consciousness
My heart frowned at such inhuman act
Embodied of time’s atrocity of warring facts
And what could be the way of resolution
When darkness descends amidst celebration
My Spirit within cried in words brooding
Seeing the carnage and human wreckage
Displaying intolerance on human dwellings
Be on thy guard against such vengeance
Damnation upon such gesture of bestiality
Blind is the mind of raging in atrocity
Measuring in unreasonable human frailty
Let’s rise like angels draped in modesty
Mother’s whose children lay prone to death
The sober selves rose enmass in defiance
Urging the world not to be a witness in silence
While parts of the world is being razed  to the  ground
How can anyone sleep peacefully around?
I wonder what the Lord makes of such Martyrdom
Where human blood spills profusely in His holy kingdom!
