The Stand …

                          I

They blinded us with overcooked sentiments,

Toying at will our fragile innocence!

Our ignorance acknowledged the shallow banal wisdom,

Adhering to those heavy words that breathe offence!

 

The messiahs were but the zealots of religious bigotry;

The wicked communal dastards!

Instigating hatred in the name of God,

Blind faith planted in us to rip us apart!

 

Violence perpetrated into bloody genocide:-

Brothers killed brothers, right in front of my eyes!

Blood gushed out of their bodies as in my arms they died!

My hurt body went numb, yet I cried and I cried!

In the coffin of humanity, I was the only soul alive,

Ravaged, devastated in the cursed land of unwise,

Infected with this wild disease, this despicable vice:-

The hell did come out of the paradise!

 

                         II

Renounce all the overcooked sentiments,

No more toying of fragile innocence!

Renounce all the shallow banal wisdom,

All those heavy words that breathe offence!

 

Renounce the zealots of religious bigotry:-

The wicked communal dastards!

Renounce the hatred in the name of God,

Blind faith shouldn’t let our moral goodness part!

 

No more violence, no more genocide:-

No more fights as the brothers unite.

No more bloodshed, no more hapless cries:-

Nursed by the endeavors benign

Curing the curse as together we harmonize

How else can we ever live and thrive?

Let us take the stand and with all our hearts try:-

Let the hell be no more in our paradise!
