A flower withered somewhere… ( a repost from my other blog)

I wrote this poem on the aftermath of 26/11 it seemed apt that I post it again while Karachi burnt last night…

My deepest condolences and fervent prayers for everyone afflicted by this event..

A flower withered somewhere,
While the night emblazoned,
Without any care…

Flames shoot up,
Reached for the ebon skies.
Engulfed,
Crimson earth reflected,
In the night sky
While tears of blood scorched
Honest eyes.
Questions long forgotten
Raised their ugly heads

Indeed, humanity died
Many a death that night
While few raged,
A defenseless fight
Against life….

A flower withered somewhere,
Quietly,
Marked the history books
In colors of shame and pain
Innocence lost,
On the altar of greed

While we remained,
witness mute
To this carnage

Flames burnt that night
Brightly orange
Or was it our sensibility?
vagrant and deranged…

  1. Things are going to be pretty bad in Pakistan. Only God knows when the people in power over there will come to their senses.

Humor me please? *winks*
