The blinding light …
The piercing sound …
The crash and burn …
Oh ! the earth-shattering explosion!
Shaking up the essence
Of mankind and humanity
In one go, in one shot
As time stood still
Flabbergasted at the turn of things!
The bodies flew around,
Decimated with disdain!
Oh! They were like worthless muck
Gutted and annihilated in a wink of an eye!
Silence rubbed on the face
Of pain, the calumny of human race,
Dictated by sinned warmongers!
The murderers in cold blood
As a generation obliterated
Saplings hurled to permanent darkness!
The devastation so ruthless!
The destruction so widespread!
Countless succumbed, paralyzing
The emotion we call peace …
The wounded now weep,
Searching in silence, the fragrance
That once came out of the bodies
Of their dear ones as they get ravaged
Day in and day out
By the abhorrent nightmares
Of the blood oozing out of their loved ones’
Ruptured bodies, forever planted
In their cursed memories!
