The Peace-Snatched Place

Many asked me to write

A poem on this beautiful place

I don’t have that vision and the sight

Where resides weapon and its fear

Majority of the time security remains tight

That even continues many months a year

Ignorant persons from here to there to everywhere take it light

Can’t they see many innocents having tear


Suffering here is every profession

From students, teachers, police, army to politician

Doctors, engineers, lawyers to even administration

There is stagnation, brutality and insanity

Nothing degrading ever seen in humanity


We have heard since ages it’s soulful place on Earth

Now it seems like a crime to have this place as birth

I don’t have anything better to tell

As it’s becoming like hell seeing this every day in my heart I often cry

Yes with deaths of innocent, every day I also die.
