By the Road I Stood.!

By the road I stood

(a visit to Kashmir after 15years)

 

By the road I stood—

it was not a common day—-

cause —- By the road I stood.

cause it was an all-new Kashmir

 

I stood watching,

watching where we are,

watching where we were.

 

By the road I stood—

gasping, struggling,

reminding myself of Kashmir.

 

Where people were— humane

where discrimination was— taboo,

where brotherhood— prevailed,

where harmony— ruled,

where corruption was— crime.

 

what could be done,

was done— without money,

what couldn’t be done,

was never done— with money.

 

By the road I stood—

it was not a common day,

cause Kashmir was missing.

cause Kashmir was lost.

  1. My favourite line :
    what could be done,
    was done— without money,
    what couldn’t be done,
    was never done— with money.

    Describes our current sorry state. Please keep writing more of such inspirational poems. Looking forward!
