LAST MAN FIGHTING...

Poetry By: Pratibha
War and military



I am grateful to so many friends of mine in Booksie who helped me write this...how?? Well I entered their challenge for getting rid of this writer’s block and also to have fun...all of them are gems...
1.Theme ‘war’ and the title “Last man fighting”. – By Pocorrox...A theme I would have never dared and I am so happy she gave me this...
2.Subject: butterfly
setting: jewelry box My words: hinder, escape, frail, dare, cadence – (the frenetic cadence of modern life. the flow or rhythm of events, esp. the pattern in which something is experienced: Synonyms 3. tempo, pulse, rhythm, meter), reminisce – (to recall past experiences, events, etc, Synonyms remember, recollect, muse) By My beautiful ALICE...
I have used “Butterfly in Jewellery Box” twice...In the first line, it signifies aspirations of people living in Palaces who use others for fulfilling their never ending ambitions. In the second usage, it signifies the vivacious peace which should be released from the clutches of desires (Jewellery box inside the palaces)...I hope it makes sense...If not ask me...
3.My 5 words from Dark Skylight were - Eyes, Watch, Dove, Trust, Sky and Always.
4.Last but not the least – the LOVELY phrase “"I drove for miles and miles and wound up at YOUR door” From Jessy ( I luv2write)
5. Walk a mile in someone's shoes- By Scatterbrain ( TED)
All suggestions and criticisms are welcome with open arms and soul...please feel free to improvise...

How effortless it is to 'declare a war'?
As effortless as having a morning coffee with buttered toast inside a luxurious palace...

As effortless as releasing the 'butterfly from a jewellery box'...right?

WRONG...

Can these power hungry monsters walk a mile in the shoes of the soldiers who...
Get up and get going at one signal of their Commander-in-chief without any doubt...
...With their country's pride and love in their soul...
Leaving behind small kids who wave good bye knowing very well that this might be the LAST TIME...
WITH ONLY ONE GOAL...
"SAVE THE COUNTRY FROM INTRUDERS"...
"Who are these INTRUDERS?"
Someone like them...TRAPPED in the consequences of "FIGHT for POWER"...
Someone with similar dreams and ambitions like them...
Dream to lead a 'SIMPLE' life sans the danger of war lurking behind corners of life...
Life is precious, every moment counts, careless moves and death is ready with a tight hug...
Protect friends; kill enemies..., move forward, fight...
FIGHT and FIGHT ...till the last man is alive...
What is MISSING...What is wrong...Why we are still NOT HAPPY?
Birth of deformed babies...genetic instability over so many generations to follow...
End of flights of fantasy and achievement...
Who won? Who lost?
Hunger for Power won...Death won, Life lost...
Truth bowed head...Lie won...
Soul Lost...Demon won...
Let's head towards HELL together HAND IN HAND...
NOTHING CAN SAVE OUR NEXT GENERATION...
NOTHING AND NO ONE EXCEPT GOD...ALWAYS watching from sky with tearful and frail eyes...
Reminiscing the days when peace, trust, harmony and love prevailed everywhere like a flying dove in limitless sky...
Like a vivacious, naughty Butterfly peeking out from jewellery box...playing hide and seek with flowers ....sunshine and honey bees...
.....in a never ending cadence of peace and tranquility...
What went wrong? What hindered the cadence?
Now there is no return...No Escape from the clutches of monstrous thoughts, devastating consequences...the more we get, the more we need...
...and what an irony? They call it a "DARING APPROACH"...Is it??
Can GOD save us...??
I am sure the prayers of the wounded soul of humanity is reaching HIS ears...
The prayer which says - "I drove for miles and miles and wound up at YOUR door."
I landed up at YOUR door GOD...YOUR DOOR...which will never close on my face...which will take away all my pains forever...
AND I Know YOU would help...
