Who will save his world

Living in turbulent times,disillusioned with the world,

She believed in the indestructibility of her inner strength,

However seething and tragic the seasons of life may be.

A woman of strong zeal and enthusiasm,

Imbued with a sense of hope and optimism,

She wrote her poems in all quietude and solitude,

Her poetry bearing out her revolutionary instinct.


She fell not in the trap of depression,

Never estranged from herself,

Though her nights were like the long nights of the Arctic

And her waters troubled like those of the Antarctic.


Accepting the inevitability of Truth,

Her research delved in black holes, portals and aliens.

Her spirit would never be quelled

Until she found the answers to her questions

Hovering around her mind like bees on flowers.


One night, she looked at the glowing embers

And thought that the species have evolved over the eons

And yet, man, master of his mind

With knowledge of all kinds

Beneath a balanced Yin and Yang

Lost the games he so intelligently played.

Now, his world is in a chaos,

And time is running fast.

Who will save his world?
