Very Unsettling

a poem by Satish Verma, India

This was the collective
fall, unsolving
the riddle of life.

In memoriam, I
light- tens of millions
of candles for each departed thought.

Ahead were hard times
of darkness, I wanted to
view the world from a cadaver eyes
after being cheated, robbed
and abused-

to be born again with
a blank book, as a white sheet
on dust-ridden toes.

Nobody will know
that a father was coming home
to seek the unborn children.
