When I opened my eyes,
The first thing I heard was a bomb blast
I was told that in it my father was lost.
I was brought up in terror,
Where the firing was my regular lullaby
Killing was common not knowing who and why???
I was supposed to symbolise peace
But I was taught the lessons of violence and hate.
I endured all this nonsense as the part of fate.
Ignorance, injustice intolerance everywhere
I knew no friends like literacy goodness and peace
The wise suffered and the incompetents were at ease.
Humanity has lost its values
And we propagate differences on fake bases
We are wounded and are left without any dresses.
