Voices of Impurity: Poem

Voices of Impurity

By Atri Majumder


We try to feel more than just water from the rain,

We throw away the sun, we lose the light

We complicate the simplest of emotions,

We are polluting the ether, bleeding out the clouds,

We are pushing away the world

To the point of extinction-again and again.


Ignorant, a tired futility creeps on us

Lost pieces of the individual self trying to crowd,

We are always trying to gain control

While the inaudible voices are reaching the stars

Burning out the soul in our self-made purgatory.
