Where is the Edge..?

Where is the Edge..?

written by: Monika Ajay Kaul



A strenuous path, the future seems.
Even if we tread, it would be like a
Voyage to nowhere, deprived of hope.

It was devoid of light, As we look back;
now looking ahead, we fathom,
our days in the Sun are numbered.

The World we live in, is mouldering;
for so long, cherishing covetousness,
now can’t come out from the mess of manipulations.

Taking fake credits and applause;
for pillaging Mother Earth for deep pockets;
even if we change now, all remains Godforsaken.

Only ‘The über rich’ will last longer
in the air conditioned havens;
The rest shall fight the end.

The ground beneath their feet crumbles.
Spinning into a dystopian nightmare,
none of them can wake from.

Once upon a time, Despair used to be
a sentiment for the aged and frail,
now it as ubiquitous and inescapable
as the polluted wind and waterways.

“Where is the Edge…?!”
The outcast Humanity asks.
