They forever prevented a mother from seeing her son’s face . .

It really pains me a lot to see ‘educated people’ representing economically stable countries declare war over hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians with no fault of theirs. I’ve been an indirect victim, losing many innocent dear friends in this ‘war against terror’ which has claimed millions of innocent lives all across the globe. The saddening part is that such heinous acts are being carried out by organizations and bodies who have ‘educated people’ on board. And by ‘education’ here, I mean the ability to differentiate between good and bad, between guilt and innocence. Sadly, that’s not the case.

They pass on murders as if they were files.
They sit on skeletons and yet do smile.

They laugh seeing a father cry over his daughter.
They act like butchers with an aim to slaughter.

They drop bombs as if they were lollipops.
They mercilessly shoot from guns which go ‘pop’, ‘pop’ and ‘pop’.

They dance on bodies splattered all over with blood.
Yet they go out for drinks with a face as ugly as a dud.

They don’t care about region or race.
They forever prevented a mother from seeing her son’s face.

All they want is innocent civilians to be dead.
They killed a 10-year old student with a bullet in his head.

I wonder what did this 10-year old do?
For he was simply heading towards his school.

He had never used a gun, a rifle or a bomb.
And was eagerly waiting to go back home and hug his Mom.

His Mom had bought him a bright new dress.
It shone even brighter with a clean, fine press.

She sat there on the table with many gift wraps.
Waiting for her son to arrive and the door to go ‘tap’.

She was never so happy any other day.
It was her 10-year old son’s birthday.

They don’t care about region or race.
They forever prevented a mother from seeing her son’s face.
