THE SORROWS OF MOWGLI........


The fearless Mowgli  has slowed his pace,
His dreams dismantled to bits,
All his pride and prejudices for belonging to human gender,
Mocks ,saying its  fake............
This human domain is far more sophisticated than Jungle plinth,
Yet filled with chauvinism and greed,
The  world  filled with carnivorous creatures, with wild emotions,
His protruded nose could inhale the aroma of flesh and blood,
The scales of skin  lacks faith and brotherhood,
Friends or Foe behind the scene ,difficult to distinguish,
Missing the innocence of friendly love of his bosom animal friends,
Ballo(the bear),Bagheera(the black panther),Hathi(the elephant),
Their difference of breed never the rid in friendship grip,
Here the friendship buried inside the poly paper sheet,
The push and pull of power stab many innocent cells,
The air of hatred among the tribes kills the  race,
Oxygen mask needed to   avoid the polluted gas,
The purity of soul vanishes in search of material wire,
The Jungle animals were fearful of fire,
The inhabitants here play fire as fire brands,
Fire in blood, categories the blood to many tribe,
The generation divided to sects with no humane trace,
Humanity is there in Jungle among the breeds,
 Mowgli being saved and brought by wolf parents, Akela and Raksha,
Here
Traces of humanity lost among the bushes of ego,
The clash killed many innocent toddlers,
NO ..... No more I want to stay here,
Mowgli  cried loud,
This territory carries more Sher Khans (the lion),  King Louie(the orangutan ) and Kali(the snake)
They hunt   and kill the innocent prey more furiously
And deadlier than original villains in Jungle Play,
Mowgli  turned back and rushed for Jungle with lots of depression and heart break
Telling this is not my place to live .......




About The Poem -

Being inspired by the great  Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book, I attempted to pen my emotions in this  poem. The story  begins  after the main  protagonist leaves Jungle ,reaches to  human existence and seeing the prevailing situations ,his reactions, This piece is an imaginary episode not intended or personalised. Rudyard Kipling’s Mowgli being brought up by wolves, protected by friends of  different breeds feel shattered after stepping to man’s world.
