DEMOCRACY DAY

in poetry •  last year 

IN MY COUNTRY!

It is only in my country!
In my country where her youth are redefined.
My country where ignorance is a norm of its people.

It is only in my country!
In my country where the elderly are nothing but a symbol of a past glory.

My country where old age doesn't necessarily denotes an ocean of wisdom.
But a show of gray hair in pitiful display.

It is only in my country!
In my country where truthfulness becomes so strange to its people.
My country where falsehood is worshiped as an heavenly divined diety.

It is only in my country!
In my country where morality was held in high esteem
Only to fall with zero pull of gravity.
My country where immorality rules
And morals are sent on exile, hopefully to return someday.

It is only in my country!
In my country where equality is preached.
"Equal Rights" they say.
But My country
In my country where our actions suggests their are superior equals.

It is only in my country!
My country where the voices of its people were so sacred.
My country where the sacred voices are shot and sealed to the last dot.
Only in my country will you see a dumb ruling over the Einsteins.
Yet, the Einsteins seem to have lost their voices too.
Pity is the state of the nation.

But in Hoping we hope, cause as long as there is life, there is HOPE.
