A Celebration On India Winning The Cricket World Cup 2011

Poem By Mohammad Akmal Nazir

The day was really a boon for them
Which suppressed their hunger and pain
Amidst the pleasure of victory
They had little money for food
But they spent it buying fire crackers
To celebrate the victory.
The next day they will experience the same agony
But for whom they sacrificed their money
And remained hungry
They will earn billions and billions
And look at them with scorn.

Comments about A Celebration On India Winning The Cricket World Cup 2011

I like you poem. I read 90 of your poem if you write. I like it to really.
Even when times are at worst there is a need/requirement to celebrate life. Not something you can truly appreciate unless you have been there. It gives insight into the illusions we create to believe everything is alright even when it is not. The poorest of mankind can be rich and happy even if only for the moment. All so true and conveyed so well. A 10 from me.
Interesting insights into the ambivalent feelings of our heroes. Well written, well done.

*a Humble Complaint*

You could have been more polite observing me,
Your harsh words have left
An indelible impression,
Hatred can be won by love alone,

A Busy Street

Shameless, nude always invites
To outrage her modesty,
Smooth and grey
who would not be

Abortion

The blow was very cruel,
The bud could not blossom,
It died underneath,
And who cares?

*a Farmer*

Clad in shabby dress, stinks sweat,
A churlish who works day and night
In the field,
To speed up the pace of progress,

A Bitter Truth

The life will remain the same,
You will remain the same,
They will remain the same,
The world will remain the same

A World Of Treason

Let's see the world with an open eye,
And take it as a bivouac not destination,
Its love is false and nature sly,
It's an obstacle in the way of emancipation.
