The last line from T.S Eliot’s Poem – ” The Wasteland ”
Shantih is a Sanskrit word which means Peace, like eternal peace.
Shantih shantih shantih,
For God sake hold your beauty and let them live
The constant cacophony is tearing me from inside,
The constant state of being numb is just a show on outside,
I am raging and I will not go gentle into the night,
I will pull up my resources and offer you a fanatical fight
The beauty of your face is nothing but a farce,
Though, you might have been the subject of a blind poet’s verse
You unfaltering beauty is a death trap,
For you, Hector is in a frozen nap
You are the root cause of all that is bad upon this land
Slain bodies are lying buried in the sand.
Your face has launched thousand ships
You have brought wrath upon my beloved city
Oh, that is not divine but a cursed beauty
Paris should have been careful,
These nymphomaniacs made my life woeful
You should burn, you should burn in hell
I have lost my boy, I have lost my city
You must die a thousand death
The people deserve a better place
The history deserves a better queen,
You must be wiped out for the sake of eternal peace
Come, drink this, for you must cease and you must have some peace ….
Shantih ! Shantih! Shantih..
