Partition 1947

Partition 1947
(Rema Prasanna)

Parted souls
bleeding wounds
mother cried
no one heard
fenced borders
splintered divide
frenzied minds
crashed and died

One hand
freedom
on the other
dissection, division
struggle not ended
on a peace pact
peace subdued

Parted lives
parted hearts
parted freedom
shared many
shared not mother
she wailed
her heart sliced

Parted love
parted ideals
stood apart
on parallel pathways
on fenced borders
war scored
final verdict
parted nation
parted for ever
