Mastering The Art of Picking at You


By:- Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Unsure of the fact
To what frequency your soul sings,
I therefore lack the understanding and ability
To match its glorious pitch.
Instead I try to find every possible reason
To malign your integrity.

Unsure of the fact
To which rhythm your heart beats on
As it keeps changing its frequency far too often.
I keep searching for ways to break your spirit,
It’s a mysterious loop I’ve yet to decode. So I would rather
Believe in malicious rumors surrounding you.

Unsure of the fact
What wavelength your mind works on,
I try to read between the lines as you speak,
And search for ulterior motives that I’m sure govern
Your actions. For how can a man be so motivated
To keep awake when the night is silent.

Unsure of the fact
How much innocence is alive inside of you
With every exposure to war and terrorism tearing it out.
I see no purpose in sewing these wounds.
Even as the attacks mount on the shivering ranks of green,
And your gunnery rumbles to avenge the death of your fallen comrades.

Unsure of the fact
How you are groomed to be sincere and loyal
With integrity intact even when shutters and doors
Are all closed on you and your veterans.
I shall take this opportunity to overburden and overwork you
With agonies of internal strife and still not feel morally guilty at all.

Call me a politician; call me a bureaucrat
I’m mastering the art of picking at you…
