Cowards Are Curses

Poem By Madhav Sarkunde

If against your will
your are chained
or put in the jail
you are not slave
but you are slave
if you keep mum
and let evils grow
like weeds afield.

If you hesitate
to flay the fake
fearing risk or
to keep youself
safe of calumny
your are enemy
of Nature's Plan.

If you daren't right
wrongs around you,
you are coward and
you know well that
cowards are worse
curses of human life!
