RANDOM THOUGHTS

Sindh 

Darkness of Silence

Rainbow of Tears

Each day a Toast

Of Pain!

Hurt!

Betrayal!

Darkness bides

Shadows: virtue, rights, morality and justice

Tears deepen

With each beat of despair

Web of hollowness and gimmickry

Heart sinks

With a tired womb

 Echoing, screaming and mourning

Cry for hope, hope and hope

Independence, desire and hope

From Darkness and Silence

(20th August 2020)
