Avik Derentz - LET DECENCY SOAR ...

For a mere moment, I glance at people, 
To see mercy in their eyes,
I want to see the light
Simply arise,
So that with no blood, no evil,
Darkness dissolves in peoples’ hearts.

Alas! I witness
The birth of darkness,
The alarmed retreat of light…
With soundless sadness
My gaze takes flight
Where wailing and clouds burden the night.

I witness how,
With inhuman rage,
The ramparts of hope are razed…
Somber wraths are born
So base, so low,
Crossing all bounds of things depraved.

For a mere moment, I wish
To see the world shaken,
The sea of conscience in a storm…
With the might and wisdom
Of the Almighty

I wish to see
Vile iniquity kneel
In front of soaring decency!


Avik Derentz
