A Poem: Golden Stars on Strong Shoulders

His pride debated on his innocence,
Immune to his emotions overflowing,
His only motive was to serve his country,
Incompetent to family values,
He had to leave with an empty heart,
A promise he kept to his son,
That he will come back safe.

Little did his body know,
That his soul was bulletproof,
Covered in tri-colour his body returned with proud wounds of battle,
That could only dent his skin but not his courage before death,
Trying to believe that he is still alive,
The son banged his Father’s chest that he broke his promise,
Not a word was uttered.

Years later the son walked his father’s footsteps,
In the search of what his father lost,
A lonely widowed mother stood proud at the doorstep looking at the horizon years,
Hoping her son would return one day,
Her body became prey to old age,
The day her son returned was welcomed by the presence of her dead body covered in the purest white that peace has ever laid eyes on.

He broke out screaming I protect millions of lives but couldn’t protect you, dear mother,
Began banging his fists till they bled against the floors that his mother walked on,
Unable to silence his pain he howled in misery till he could not feel his voice any more,
Home never felt like home again,
How he slept curled up like a kid in his mother’s closet,
Hiding from the silence of memories,
Breathing in of the sent that was left of her,
He returned back to the army with a heavy heart to serve his country,
The world knew him to be an emotionless beast,
Little did they know the story behind it.


Everyone has a story and the pain behind that smiles. People don’t realize that their troubles and pain moulded them into a puppet in the hands of life. Some lives are taken for granted and some valued are less valued while others are lost in the process. But the circle of life goes on. I hope I lit light on an untold story that was hidden from this world…
