In this City

This is the title poem of my poetry book. Whenever I go on vacation to my hometown Cochin-Kerala, the people I meet seem to be in awe of Bangalore. Whereas I feel there’s more to it than all the glitter. In this poem I’ve tried to show the other side of the coin.

In this city of lights,
There is a darkness within.

In this sea of humanity,
There’s none to believe in.

In these boulevards of wealth,
There’s a poverty of soul…
