I fail to understand the logic behind
Any reason I just fail to find
Of why the atrocities were done
Of why lives were snatched for fun
Dreams were crashed, hearts were broken
Homes were ruined, spirits were shaken
Irreparable damage done to them
There is no limit to condemn
Taken by a sheer surprise
Outlawed they became overnight
Where to go and whom to ask
Just breathing seemed a herculean task
With prayers and their pride intact
When mind was bereft of any tact
To breathe became the sole objective
Survival was the only motive
Families got shattered and torn apart
Many loved ones made to depart
Lives lost were just a thing
Dreams got tattered in a blink
Friends turned away, insults were meted
Those cruel hearts hardly fretted
Seeing famished children, mothers said
“How to feed them a little bread?!”
Mercilessly and with no shame
Lives were taken on an excuse lame
Men, women, young or old
Who to ask, what support to hold!
Just agonizing cries around
Before they too got in pain drowned
Why did no one bother I wonder?
Why did God allow this blunder?
On just reading about these horrid facts
When my heart in a such a way reacts
How would had they endured it all?
I only look back entirely appalled
Who’s accountable for those who perished?
Were they even sufficiently punished?
Each molecule in me is in a rage
Thinking how they lived in that horrid cage
With questions so many I only whine
Any reason for this my heart declines
Wondering what was the design behind
I only want few answers to find!
Humans are meant to love and care
Then how can someone show such dare
Of plotting such a massacre
In God’s court how did he fare!
When will we all understand
Best religion is to offer a helping hand
Stop the killings in the name of God
By shedding blood you’ll never earn HIS nod
Let’s not forget, let’s remember always
The sacrifices by those millions made
Let’s keep the fire burning within
To build a world free of such sins!
