Dr. Stephen Gill wishes you Happy New Year with “ Avtaars of Savagery”


Again this year, Christians are going to celebrate the birth of the Messiah who came to establish the culture of peace but the forces of destruction have been also growing in power to spread their desert. I wrote this poem about those forces of destruction.

When the avtaars of savagery
mow down defenceless innocents
tear down the towers of routine
deep pain goes deeper

Spiders of sinister news
crawl in and out of the cracks
of the calm
that mothers the rationality of discipline
and the stress-causing stairs
of the menacing fear go up and down
with the sound
of the tombstone in the grass.

From the oak of harmony
leaves fall
in the maze of mistrust.
The locusts of threat
shadow the crops of shelters
and the driving rains of discomfort
lash the denuded twigs of hope.
