An Appeal

  What a genocide of humanity!
Hatred--- an old dragon
breathing down Our country
slaughtering,' but know we not'..
hatred can only be appeased with love!!!

These so called soldiers of faith,
Preach nonconformist faith,
Loss of faith'Is loss
of one own self'
Needs salvation-

Emptiness of such lives
Leads them to frenzy acts'
To disaster..
To meddle with others lives..
That becomes their faith divine

That faith'
what is worthless'
Full of emptiness,
No God within
No consciousness therein

spreading a cult
Of violence and Domination
self righteousness( ferocity) and retaliation
Portraying repression of some
aggression of others

But in the heinous act of Godhara'
A pogrom- Gory massacre
-a well manipulated,
A skullduggery,
the dance of death,

Followed another annihilation
An aftermath
Of tempers high and emotions flying-
Intolerant society
Arsoning, burning and looting

Growing fanaticism,
Tearing humanity apart,
Creating fissures in
human minds-capricious
Imbalance society,- barbarism

An appeal! An appeal!

We are the citizens of earth first
Irrespective of what beard we sport
And what God we claim to pray
Not you,
divide us with color, caste or creed
or by any name, land or deed
my dreams are shattered
and many along with me weep

Can we individually cobble together
our values straight'..!
Can we individually put our
perspective right'
can religion be our private domain'!

Are we not children of same god!,
Living in the land of Karam Bhoomi
Where teaching of
Mahatma and Buddha are taught..
Where tolerance is a virtue.
where civilization galore melted together once,
Where secularism is our political slogan,

We all need to meditate,
To look within.
To introspect
, adhere to the religion of humanity,
Believe in the faith of mankind,
Love of brotherhood
, peace & harmony,
Restore faith of oneness
'..

I see a ray of hope
Time is a great healer,
We can individually be ' civilized',
,instead of hanging heads in shame
,Lets all wake up
and pledge,
to Stitch the fabric that burnt the society yesterday,
to make a better tomorrow'
