We Wait!

We Wait !



?- Fr Cedric Prakash sj
?
We wait
Wondering
What the morrow
Will bring
?
We wait
Frenzy exit polls
Competing weirdly
As the bell tolls
?
We wait
Whither democracy
We say and
Enter autocracy?
?
We wait
Knowing full well
That no one knows
If the future is hell
?
We wait
As the chest of arrogance
Smothers all
And specially tolerance
?
We wait
In struggle endless
For justice
Striving tireless
?
We wait
For the new dawn
A deeper resolve
To be born
?
We wait
In silent prayer
Confident
That God is there
?
