I am ex-serviceman from Indian Air Force. Now I am the poet


Little dark skin   Thursday, March 22, 2018 2:18 PM   You hated me well And wanted to tell "You are not welcome" And you should never come to me   My eyes remained wide open As she reminded me often You are not only black in color But at heart also not a pleaser   What to say about such person! Who has no regard for divine reasons Was it in my hand? To look white and befriend   Is it not the insult to lord or creator? Who had taken enough care? To end us on earth And do something worthwhile before death   I kept mum and prayed God to forgive him As he had shown disregard to all of them Who was little dark skinned? And, only for that, were condemned From <>

Dear HM - I was intrigued by the displayed title of your latest poem
- "Honey Testes" in the context of the content, bearing in
mind that "testes" is an alternative word for the male testicles.
Just checking.

Your writings have reminded me much of the heartbreaking headlines I've read and this movie that I saw...

I see that this is an issue close to you and I am glad to see such perspectives opened up to the world through a military man.

I shall try to read some more of your work. Welcome to WOL.

It might be a good idea to ease up on postings, while WOLers are becoming acquainted with you. A great many at once often go unread. Especially as the end of the month is only hours away, and they will all go into archives, so to speak. Easy enough to find, but definitely not in 'plain view', right up front.

That is a fine photo.
