Dichotomy

I know there's something
Wrong with the world
When I see
Weaklings hiding in the filth
While courage gets
Massacred on the streets

I know there's something
Wrong with the world
When I see
Lust slipping through unnoticed
While passion gets
Labeled as evil

I know there's something
Wrong with the world
When I see
Morality being condoned
While love gets
Suffocated into anonymity

Hey.. why such a negative post?

Hey Debajit :)

The reason is simple - I did feel negative the day I wrote this :) There are some things which I simply cannot stand - and those are the ones which I have mentioned in the poem. I cannot stand people calling themselves courageous and then going into hiding when that courage is required the most..

Sometimes, it takes the acknowledgment of negatives to be able to move towards the positives - I guess that's the way I would want to look at it :)

Cheers!
Priyanka.
