a poem by Pushpalata Venugopalan, India

In a sea
Of faces hostile;
Not daring to meet
The greedy eyes,
Set to devour
All within sight.

I approach some faces
Seemingly kind,
But shy away
When nearing I find;
Their eyes a-mocking,
Fingers accusing
Point at random.
( Reasoning at rest
Flowing with the rest.)

Their talons
Rake up with glee
The hurt buried
Deep inside me!

I pass a glen
So full of men
Gathered for fun
At the expense
Of other men!

I withdraw silently
Into the night
To gleam a sight
Of souls pure
Who'd ignore
Bodies mortal
And concentrate
Upon the soul!
