The Language Of Love


Aye! Shhh! What do we hear?
The sounds of hatred & fear…
The hunger of the guns & the knives,
The cries of the innocent lives…

What do our eyes see?
Unfortunately not ecstasy…
Media reports that give shocks,
Human-hearts or stones & rocks?

What do we speak?
That things make us weak/freak…
After what we hear & see,
What can our words possibly be?

Wish our World gave love a chance- 
Listen with the ears of tolerance! 
See through the eyes of compassion! 
Speak with the language of love & emotion!
Then, what we’d hear, see & say,
Would be so different in every way…
Let there be love & peace celebration,
For a better Planet Earth for every generation…

      Hungry guns & knives are red-hot...
      Shudder to think of the unfortunate hatred & bloodbath due to lack of love...

    1. Yes, Nabanita.
      Rumi had rightly recognized the three requisites- tolerance, compassion & love.

  15. Though your poem was written in February, 2014, it fits the 2015 first prompt of the new year well. We definitely all need to practice a bit of tolerance. At this time the concept seems fairly obscure to many, but we can always hope that there will be a radical change in that regard this year. Happy New Year, Anita.

    1. I was going to compose a new poem for the 'Listen' prompt. However, in light of the #CharlieHebdo incident, I felt this poem is apt and needs to be shared...
      Our world needs tolerance. May we all strive for peace.
      Happy New Year, Mary!

  17. The rhyme of this makes it a pleasure to read. And I agree that ears of tolerance and eyes of compassion would make for a better world. I guess we can each start in our own little corner of the world.

      Yes, I agree with you. We all need to make a beginning. Think global & act local.

  18. This is sadly a very apt poem in the wake of what happened in France in the past few days. May we learn to listen and not just hear.

  19. There certainly is a time in which some anger can be acceptable, but some of the strife that I've seen in my lifetime is way beyond bearable. I'll never understand why someone would fight or kill over a difference of opinion. Sad thing to turn on the news and just see horror. Used to be a time where I enjoyed watching the news, not so much anymore.
