Poetry: Cowards We All

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers


Everyone staring at the girl walking across,
stranger but for everyone most beautiful
a stab, an attack on her by another vicious stranger
everyone pass by, turn eyes
stranger is stranger
spur of feelings overflown
the beauty goes overblown
momentous everything in life
eager to indulge in desires
fail to listen to conscious

Coward Me
Coward You
Cowards We All.

    1. Very true but we are to blame ourselves for this.

  2. Yes there is a Coward Me, Coward You, Cowards We All. We fail to stand up for a stranger, however that stranger looks hepless and in need! We fail to stand against wrongs because a stranger is a stranger... (Such an apt saying)

    1. And somehow at some point of time we need to realize the wrong in us to start doing the right.

  3. I agree that we are all guilty of ignoring a girl in distress or an accident victim on the road. However, I do not completely agree that this is due to cowardice. I have explained in my post http://proactiveindian.com/2014/09/02/brave-in-thought-and-word-but-not-in-deed/
