Panah…

For long, we have just been chasing shadows
Trying hard not to fall
Fear, war, worry
We’re always in a hurry
Rape, terror, disease
All of it seems ‘normal’

I just put on my earphones
And continue on my merry way
Not paying heed to what I get to see
Netflix, songs, films, and all else
Conspire to corrupt me

All we want is rosy cheeks
And paths covered with snow and leaves
nobody gives a damn about the accidental gas leaks
And about thousands who died last week

All we’ve wanted in life is space,
Space without a trace,
Of fear, misery, and disease
Is it a bit too much to ask for?
All the world’s filled with peril
It looks sophisticated on the face of it
But happens to be completely feral
It runs on war
With bullets and barrels
And all we do is sing Christmas carols

Today was one of the many days
When I saw people entering into the fray
Being butchered, slaughtered, and being stuffed into a pot of clay
All I did was put on my earphones
And continue on my merry way…
