In the world everywhere ...

Umesh Ghoshdastider


In the world everywhere I see day in
and day out people are busy to establish
their superiority by highlighting the wrongs
or by misdirecting us which is the testimony
to their selfishness.
A flower wants to tempt bees by its smell
and colour while nature attracts us by
its beauty that persuades an implication of nationality.
Some ideas are so trusted that's hard to shake off.
The germ of hatred and zeal fruits now.
My eyes are closed in the sunlight
while I kill an ant that causes no harm.
The water accumulating here is polluted.
