Innocent Girl

In that human settlement,

There came beasts one day

The place which was like heaven

It was burnt to hell.

Mother and father she used to call

They were burned alive in that hell

The valley which was place of smiles

Now there were black balls of dust.

And she the innocent soul

Wandered in the midst of flames

To search her mom and dad

But the beasts had ruined her world

For the sake of power and throne!
