Definition Of Democracy

2003

They are coming in enjoying rights,
They took the sidewalk without fights.
They saw me but vow me total null,
Side by side, they remained in full.

Walking is allowed both ways in a side,
However, they walk with their pride.
They congested the path and occupied;
How would I walk with individual pride?

An aim, a wish to pass, to go ahead;
Just a tinny single line, all I needed.
My right of movement is blocked,
My Individuality fully ignored

No discipline and proper manner!
No morality, to practice and share!
To let me walk-by and have a way!
To let me be happy, to have a day!

They are coming in enjoying rights,
They took sidewalk without fights.
They saw me but vow me total null,
Side by side, they remained in full.

Lack to listen and to respect an individual!
Mistreating the weak, accusing disloyal!
Gangs are related and united each other!
Hands on their hands and are mixed together!

Down their hands and end their greed!
Make a single line to let me proceed!
They cannot take the whole priority!
I don't want to halt to give them superiority!

Majority is democracy and minority is what?
Individuality, family, should that be shut?
Ethics and morality must have popularity!
To uphold an individual in to productivity!

Where is my status and position?
As a single man and very alone.
Why minority got no power?
Why am I just a follower?

Why everything is for the gangs and goons?
Their numbers are huge with tough tones.
So, democracy cannot give justice;
Individuality, rights for minority hard to reach.

Have you seen who robbed and took?
Who robbed manhood, livelihood, traditional book?
Why do they control family and individual?
Why regimes are convenient, enjoyable?

Lack to listen and to respect an individual!
Mistreating the weak, accusing them disloyal!
Gangs are related and united each other!
Their hands on hands and are mixed together!

An insightful piece of poetry, elegantly brought forth in beautiful rhyme scheme with conviction. A lovely poem indeed. Thanks for sharing Chan.
Chan Mongol, You presented a call to our senses! What do we value? Some things are so shallow compared to the very freedoms here in USA which can be taken for granted. But these freedoms are not common in this world. blessings kathy
