Victory of Good Over Evil... yes, tat was the topic given to us for the creative writing competition held during the Utsav, a diwali celebration, at our company today...

there was the dark, the evil, the cruel that every1 hated...
and there was the light, the fair and the just, all appreciated...

darkness billowed... and silence ensued...
the fiery eyes scorched the crowd...
the cruel tongue and the menacing force scared the wits out of everyone below...
the creature of awe and strength, fought to regain its rein and reign...
the power exhumed with every movement, the others watched with bated breath...

now it was the turn of the fair and the just, to slaughter and kill the rotten evil...
for everyone around was shouting for blood, the evil blood of the satan, the rot...
now was the turn, the long awaited, to take over and rule the welcoming herd...
now was the moment, a time stop show, in the ever iterating history of life...

yes! A moment that has been repeated too many times in this biased world...
the one that favors the light and the fair, over the dark...
no one remembered who decided the good - evil distinction...
no one knew wat was, the demarcation...
all they cared for was being loyal... like all their ancestors, to the good, the fair...
no one paused to think wat wrong the dark did, apart from seeking revenge for its centuries of hurt..
centuries of discrimination, that enraged it to cruelty...

n now was the moment of glory for the ever adulated fair, the light...
that it wud not miss, for anything in the world, for history has to be repeated...
the dark sulked inside its empty soul, its own shadow... for it knew the history too...
but it stood magnificient and aweful... to fight back once more...
for it was not coy but brave... it was not tricky or clever like the manipulative fair... the one that had mesmerised the crowd already...
the dark knew the sin of its ancestors and why its lineage would never be accepted...
but it also wanted to avenge the crushing of its struggles without reasoning...
thrashing of its foregenerations for wat one at the very beginning did... avenge for the destruction of its lineage for the act of that ONE and never having been forgiven...
for never having been given a chance... for all the discrimination and the bias...
a long standing fight, before it was trashed away as the spiteful... before its bravery was forgotten along as the cunning of the fair would be....

for the fair would win... IT DID... hail the fair, the just, the ruler for generations tat have been and many yet to come...
yell with joy, ye welcoming herd, for ur loyalty has been rewarded...
ur sentiments for ur forefathers, who wer a victim of the first defaulter, the first dark, have been answered and justified...
u have sought revenge... miseries that may have prevailed if the dark, coming in the bloodline of the very first cruelty, had taken over, have been avoided...
no, we would never give anybody a second chance... not risk it...
no, we would never pause to think... even if our prejudices prevail for generations it is fine...
for the classification has been done... finalized... there it would be, fair, the light, that wud be good...
and there, this cruelty would be dark, and wud be destroyed... and we would never pause to think abt the means with which this was achieved...
no matter how "dark" the means may be...

hail light... let’s celebrate the victory of the light over the dark....

PS: First of all I did not want to write anything under this topic... Then I saw an entry (tat got the second place, which I thought deserved the first) and got inspired...

So, three things, no, four things actually... one: the poem was too long for a competition, imagine this in a hand written copy... Duh!!

two: I know it's not gr8 material...

three: the content is too dark and sarcastic to compete in a festive mood... n well, I confess I knew it already and just wanted people to read it... Atleast a few wud read, understand and well muse along... :) :)

FOUR: NO... NOT SOUR GRAPES... :) :) Past all tat stage anyway...

:) very dark and sarcastic indeed. But a different perspective to it. And your poems are more like verses, it's a very nice style you adopt!
