When the hands that pray
Are same as the ones that kill,
And people think it’s divine to fold palms
And bow down in temples, still.
Should you give them a ‘sermon’,
Which noone else will ?
Or instead, just sit back, be nonchalant
And take a tranquilizer pill?
Even when those voices ring in your ears,
Painful and shrill,
Should you let it blare,
Alongside the incessant blood spill ?
The thoughts that make you restless
And make your bones chill,
Should you let it be, let them wane, or at least
Let your bleeding heart be dipped by your quill?
