“Kill not, innocent any more”.


Hush! Doesn’t your heart weep, eyes get no sore?
No love! No mercy! “Kill not, innocent any more”.

What religion and faith, away from humanity?
Heard not the cry, the grief, at sudden sunset
Death laughs, heaven shy; with humans infirmity
Devil tangled, sat on head; teaches ugly pretext.

I am not a learned, yet, it is known to me perfectly
No Book has ever taught to kill innocent mercilessly
Away from humanity- hedge, devils silently whisper
In disguised, evil verses recited, as a holy character!

Beware, O! My brethren, beware, awake! Awake!
Sleep not, awake! Un-blinded, from thy deep slumber
Forget not dear, think we are one, just you remember
We all feel pain and grief, how you can enjoy the ache!

Wounded, thought aches, hate myself, with gore,
Save me, save the humanity, love, from your core
Hush! Doesn’t your heart weep, eyes get no sore?
No love! No mercy! “Kill not, innocent any more”.

    I do indeed like this one very much, Aftab. One needs not be learnèd to feel the link between all humans, like a fence is made, a chain-link fence of humanity. But you say there are no evil books: try Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler and you might be stunned.
