I see it limp and lifeless..
sprawled across the bed…
I stand and stare , all helpless
But it is long gone , long dead…
I wait for it to stir , to give me a sign.
Perhaps I can help , perhaps go back in time
I pray hard , I pray fast , to the Almighty benign
Hoping it’s only a nightmare , I wait for my clock to chime…
I brush away my tears , my heart still pounding hard ,
And once again , I turn my eyes to the body on the bed…
The truth now dawns on me – the Earth is already marred ;
I grieve , I mourn , as I finally accept – Humanity is now dead... !
- [ p.s : I wrote this poem to express my utter shock and grief at the yesterday’s incident in my neighboring nation where so many innocent children were attacked and killed mercilessly , leaving behind so many families mourning the loss of their beloved babies…. I see this heinous act as the death of humanity….. ]
