I am Time speaking

I am Time speaking      more to next  

This Poem is dedicated to my father 
Late Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor
Who fought for the freedom of India 
with Mahatma Gandhi 1920 to 1947
and wanted to shape a corruption free India.

The Poem is also dedicated to  Anna Hazare, 
who is still on fast since 16th Aug. 2011
for the great cause of removing corruption from India 

With massive mass support  from every corner of India
Anna  has become the Second Gandhi of India. ...Ravindra

I am time speaking 
Are you listening to My Voice
Can you see by open eyes
The waves of crowd rising high and high
Like the waves of a turmoil sea.

The heated lava of anger and resentment 
Is burning because of You
And you only
The resounding noises of the broken dreams
Of every one from all walks of life and 
people from all the generations.

Have you ever sensed and realized
The aching pains of the badly swollen veins
Of the masses of this country.

The anguish,  pain and the helplessness with which 
the young men and women 
watch everyday  
Shattering of their hopes and 
dreams after dreams. 

You are still hiding your face in the sand of time
You do not want to listen
Any voice.

Even when, 
These are voices of millions and millions
of your masses.

You show as if you are deaf 
before the 
Thundering sounds of roaring sky.

Or you do not want to listen and see  
You even do not want to understand
What kind of roaring voices are these.

These are not sounds, 
This is Tsunami of thundering sky
I am time speaking

The roaring voices which you show unheard
Are the voices of a Mass Revolution.

Those who do not hear these roaring thundering voices
It engulfs them in its arms forever like Tsunami.

I am Time speaking.

    Dear Ravindra, this poem is so profound. It is reminiscent of Carl Sandburg's "I Am the Grass." Very nice use of personifacation with time as an onlooker as war and hatred break the dreams "of every generation." Your father was a true leader, one who stood up for his principles. Lovely dedication to him and the message is so poignant. It's applicable to much of what we still see in today's world. Love, Carolyn
