Take a Risk ! – A Poem

Men are jobless,homeless, foodless.
They risk their life,
against all odds & even,
against the pandemic
for survival of their family.
Power veils the secrecy.
Powerful men overcome the powerless.
They risk their respect, diligence
to serve food to their children.
Power rules over humanity; is truly said.
Humanity risk itself to survive.
Men risk themselves to thrive.
Nature risk themselves to arrive.
We all take a risk to rise !!

Poem written for d’verse poet hub.

A d’Verse poetics prompt:
Take a risk!

At d’Verse, we were encouraged to explore the theme of risk. Possibilities included –

• tackling difficult subjects;
• laying bare a personal struggle in vivid detail;
• writing on any topic as long the word “risk” is used (perhaps the risk we take falling in love);
• exploring a new writing form that you may find “risky” or unconventional.
