Words

They fall
In unintelligible gibberish
At a poor pace
Not caring
About the sky
that they were born to claim

Too helpless
To help
the one that they fall on and crush
under their weight..

Poor souls.. these little ones
If only they knew..
Their own little power... if only.. they had
floated lightly,
into the air
like dreams are meant to..
instead they took
reality on their shoulders
and that is a heavy burden.

No wonder they fell
not into the open sky
but on the earth
crushing the one who stood under
with open, wide arms
hoping to reap
a harvest of beautiful dreams
and instead
crushed under
the weight of these pointless words.

I am not sure who the murdered was...

LABA DIENA!(i.e. G'DAY from Lithuanian into English),
I'm Vacys from Vilnius, I was not unprepared for it - to defer to get together, to see at a glance a splendid Indian poetry !
Greetings !
Sorry my ignorant English...
