Plagued is our world
with umpteen diseases,
with hatred and gore,
reigning its atmosphere.
The musty air
coagulates our emotions
chokes our consciousness
and make us demons.
Hardwired were we,
to spread the love and kindness.
but we tampered with it
to suit our will of embracing coldness.
We look around
in each other’s face
with a smug, and smirk at
the hapless state of the poor fellow being.
We turned into hopeless sadists
and addicted to afflict others with pain.
Happiness took its solace in us
only when we let the cruelty run in our veins.
We want to grow and prosper
but at the expense of
We wish to conquer the mountains
by pushing others down the lane.
Have we forgotten that
to conquer anything else
first, you need to conquer yourself!
Hold on to the aggravating inhumanity
slowly carving a hole in your hearts
which would only get bigger and dreadful
if we didn’t play our necessary part!
