A song so sung, oh sung to its end on a nameless

A song so sung, oh sung to its end on a nameless
All the beginning, the beginning so sweet, sweet mingling oh aimless.
Destiny, what destiny; to say and say?
All destiny, all destiny; they so say.
All their self-traps; they close and close,
By chanting falsely ‘the departed soul' to rest in peace in gloss
They spit and spit ‘created' agony in words of growth,
And so shut their eyes to hide all truth.
Repeat those selfish- “She is the daughter of Earth”
So she well returned and returned to the Earth.
Fearless she was, when she met, met-
The canines horrible of the Death; all hot.
So, so nobody knowing, knowing even her name,
The ‘country' burnt her body to ashes unknown.
All the memory she did bear
Her ‘country' buried all so clear.
Rulers' sons, they kept all jokes,
To share in between; on her death to mock.
They laughed and laughed and laughed all wonder
No one to say a word to them to hinder.
Are they not the ‘lions' to rule this land,
On tomorrow as ‘so harmless' on band.
Are they not the cunning vultures to peck, bite and cut-
The flesh and blood of womanhood, harping, harping all got?
A song, so sung; oh sung, oh sung to its end on a nameless,
All the beginning, the beginning; of so sweet mingling, oh aimless!

William John

I am born and brought up in Kerala state, in India. In Kerala, Thrissur city is my native place and now I am residing at Kadavoor village in Ernakulam district.I am a senior lawyer at The High Court of Kerala. Literary talents all dwelt in my blood from my very birth itself. From, while studying in the primary classes, I wrote stories, dramas and poems in Malayalam.While studying in high school classes I wrote stories and poems in English. Then it grew in me as an endless blessing craze. I do write in English as well. I do write stories, novels, dramas and verses. I have written more than twenty thousand poems in Malayalam, about twenty novels and more plays.In English, now I have completed more than seven hundred poems. I think, very soon that it will grow to at least a five thousand. I am so much pleased and thankful to those nice friends who go through my poems all over the world and shower the rain of horripilate congratulations. Yours,William John(Email: adv.williamjohn@gmail.com)blog: http://leopardmom1.blogspot.in/facebook fan page : http://www.facebook.com/PoetWilliamJohn?ref=ts more…
