The wind shrieked
The clouds thundered
Lightning struck the sky
It poured and poured
Drenching the earth
The gods cried out their souls
Suddenly the wind seized.
The sky grew dark and cloudy
The pouring stopped a while
As if to pay homage to the departed souls
Covered in the National flag
Lying still in their coffins
Their heartbeats vanished forever
Devils crossed their emotional path
They were proceeding to guard their homeland territories
Braying, bloodthirsty devils crossed
Their innocent patriotic strides
And crushed them forever
The heaven cried
The birds shuddered
The sun hid behind the clouds to shed silent tears
The stars and the moon declared it a mournful night
They crept behind and refused to light the path of sinners
The only shelter they availed was in the hearts of those
Who laid down their lives
The mothers cried, the wives wailed
The children agonized looked beyond the vacant space
Searching with hungry eyes
Their dear lost fathers somewhere hid from their sight
Their aged fathers mute and blinded with questions unanswered
Stared at the young bodies draped in the National Flag
Martyred and lost forever
Who will punish these Ravanas of humanity?
Who will avenge their beloved children’s innocent death?
Is the Nation ready?
Are the people united?
Are the hatching differences of our leaders united on this issue?
Their marketing skills stand above this tragedy.
The aching bodies lying in the coffins
And consumed to flames in their hometown
Demand an answer
The vacant eyes of their families will haunt those forever
Who play a foul game?
This cold- blooded murder will chase you in your sleep
Awaken you from your lust of power
To roughly shred your hankerings for wealth and glory
To transport yourselves to ‘Heaven’
Where our martyrs lie in the lap of god
Guarded by the angels divine
Who will spread their wings and wipe the un-dried tears
Of their loved ones upon this earth
