                                                                                       We Wait !

                                                                                                                                   - Fr Cedric Prakash sj

We wait
What the morrow
Will bring

We wait
Frenzy exit polls
Competing weirdly
As the bell tolls

We wait
Whither democracy
We say and
Enter autocracy?

We wait
Knowing full well
That no one knows
If the future is hell

We wait
As the chest of arrogance
Smothers all
And specially tolerance

We wait
In struggle endless
For justice
Striving tireless

We wait
For the new dawn
A deeper resolve
To be born

We wait
In silent prayer
That God is there
