A fire burns within me tonight,
Of anguish, hatred and dismay,
Silence embraces me slowly,
Tears replace the smiles today.
A drop of life, was lost tonight,
Innocence cruelly taken away,
A moment of joy, turned tragic,
For what reason, none can say.
A city in motion, turned to stone,
A moment, turned our lives forlorn,
A moment, our hearts in our mouth,
On this day, many a love was torn.
In a moment, before our eyes,
The dark night sky became red,
No remorse, as one by one,
Priceless lives fell and bled.
No reason can justify this sin,
For the innocent, spare a thought,
Hell’s fury is less, for the demons behind,
They have a nation’s curse, that can’t be forgot
For the souls that were lost,
I pray, let them rest in peace,
Let us join their loved ones on earth,
For their souls, a moment of silence please.
I am shocked to see the terror that is striking India these days. Not only India but the World over, it is reigning supreme. Though the fight against terror is active, it is not yet strong enough. The innocent lives that are being lost, it is a lot to say.
To spread a little love is difficult, but when we try to do that, the world is the best place to be. But rather than spread the love, the world is intended to be a centre of terror it seems. One alone cannot go against terror. That is a task too big, to do alone. Hand in hand, perhaps the world can fight against it.
Separated, we are easy to be thrown down. But together, it becomes difficult for anyone to separate us. With this post, I light a candle, for those souls that were lost to terrorism. May their souls rest in peace. Amen.
