Nightmare Times


 

From screaming  headlines to breaking news

It’s  nightmare time, as terror concocts toxic brews

*

Be it Brussels, India, Twin Towers , Turkey or France

The world appears to have gone into a terror trance

*

Innocents pay with blood  life and limb

Sitting ducks to a conscience gone numb

*

When will it stop – this madness in division?

When will we wake up – to a new voice of unison?

*

Together, maybe we can make the nightmares stop 

Together we can onto the bus of love n reason hop.

*

Into that long forgotten dream of “heaven of freedom”,

Let the country, nay let the world today, awake! 

*

Freedom of expression, freedom of choice of religion

Freedom of belief,  freedom of sanity and reason!
