United Effort can help remove all evils !

Updated on April 13, 2015

Be silent don’t speak a word

That’s what they want

You watch and listen helplessly

as you don’t have the courage to speak up

You fear that if you protest

you may have to pay a heavy price

your blood boils but you keep calm

You find no choice

You look in the mirror

and hate yourself

You clench your fists

bang on the wall in closed door

Your mind cannot accept

the happenings that surround you.

You have sleepless nights

tossing and turning on your bed

often looking on the ceiling and

listening to barking of the dogs

in the midnight.

You fall asleep for a while

And wake up

Was it a dream and if it was

who did you dream of who slowly

helped you get back your

strength of mind.

Who will bell the cat is no longer

a question that bothers you anymore

You jump up from bed and say to yourself

Enough is Enough

And you, along with many who had

kept quiet all along helplessly,

join hands and come out

to the open raising

your voices against all atrocities

And your movement this time starts to frighten those

who had frightened you

and tried to keep your mouth shut.

They still try to keep their stand

and watch you from a distance

hoping that your unity would

be fragile and they can pounce

upon you but this time your mind

is fixed, strong, and many many

hands now join you making your

Grip strong and stable

You are now in a position

to fight back and make your

voices heard loudly

Your joint effort finally removes

the black cloud that had thickened

and now starts to disappear

and you all smile with the sunshine

falling on your faces.

Your children look at you

in admiration as you come home

and tiptoeing your bedroom they

feel so happy to see you having

a good and peaceful sleep at night.
