Here I bring you

A tale of my burning home from this dreary paradise

where peace is no where in the whirling shades

of this incompatibility. Being its dwellers means to fall prey to its expected uncertainties

either become

the victims

or firsthand witnesses

of these uncertainties. We are left

in a despair

only to scribble

the epitaphs

over the gravestones

and sing

the elegies

to mourn

in a grief of those falling flowers, Who

in their tender age are being forced

to leave for the heavenly abode


blood soaked bodies

are tomorrow's witnesses

of today's brutalities.
