Its a battle.
I can hear the battle cries
None is wrong

The effect of it will stay for long
Hopes are dead
for a true life.

Can’t get it all. Care to xplain?
This poem here can be interpreted in any way you want. But i shall give you a hint of the jest of it.
The witness here witness a battle/ fight/argument where he is aware of the situation the reason of the whole matter. He can see clearly the reason behind the whole thing and probably even knows that who is at fault here.
But inspite of it, he is too meek/ afraid a coward to interfere. He might even have his own reason behind it.
Its an open interpretation and that’s the beauty of it. Care to make your own now. 🙂
