    BATWAARA

    Zindagi ki or chlti hui raah par
    ham bhi chl pare,
    jo raah thi gamo ke kaaton se bare.
    sirf kaante hi nehi, khusiyon ke fulo ko bhi Dekh paye,
    un bauchaaro ko dekhte hi laga sirf, khusiyon ke hi geet gaayen!!
    Magar inke the kuch alag hi mijaaz..
    Aur kyun na ho?
    ham to bhul hi Gaye the, Yahan sabhi ke hai Apne alag alag rivaaz!!
    Ab smjh aya kyun hai yahan fulon ke Saath kaante bikhre hue,
    kyunki, insaano ko insaano se hi BAAT diye Gaye....
    Yahan insaan hi apno ko Hindu, musalman, Sikh aur na jaane Tarah ke mehfilo me baat diye
    Isliye to ham ise khatm krne ki thaan liye!!
    isi batwaare me Kaaran sabhi bhul chuke the Apne subaad,
    Kyunki unke na rage apne se pyar krne ke muraad...
    Magar yeh kya???
    manzil tak pahuchne se pehle hi ham to raah par gir gaye!!
    Magar kaise? Ooh!!
    Ham to bhul hi Gaye, aakhir ham bhi to hai usi batwaare ke shikaar ,
    Sirf isi ke kaaran khara kr diya Gaya hamare saamne diwaar!
    Ab ham manzil tk to pahuch na paaye, magar raah se kuch khusiyon me ful Saath laaye..
    Jo lavzo se Baya kiye, vo kr na dikhaye;
    Aur jo kr dikhaye, vo sirf khwaabo me hi rang laaye.
    Bhala ham bhi kya krte?
    Aakhir ham bhi to hai usi batwaare ke shikkar,
    Vahi batwaara.......Jahan insaano ne insaano ko hi, rivaazo me baata yaar!!!

    दंगे होते नही हैं,

    If riots and protests could change the world
    mobs celebrated for power and lust
    If just is unrest, if opinions when of mass is best
    Then behold, the world is heading not towards dawn but to a grey twilight
    Which deceits of light but ends in the dark
    where red seems vermillion but is the blood of millions
    If tameless citizens are new brave, if religion makes then unafraid
    then breathe deep, the world stands on the threshold of many other bloody Fridays, of wars, of holocausts
    We are making history, repeating once again what we shouldn't
    Technology did wonders, but the human race is a shame
    It bleeds, it proceeds where humanity asks to recede

    From the ruins

    When I was just an infant,
    Communal riots broke out in my city.
    Brothers and sisters of the same breed
    Divided by practices and cultural identity.
    While I inhaled the smoke of the last century,
    My parents are witnesses to the riot of 1993.
    The horror of that fateful evening
    and the days that followed after it burned,
    Their memories remained vivid and clear.
    As authentic as their narratives are,
    Fear still gripped my mother's heart.
    She said she would wrap me in blanket
    And hid me under the bed,
    Whispering a silent prayer that I won't cry
    To the deafening booms and blasts of the night sky.
    This story was just a beginning
    Another chapter emerged as days went by
    Of how terror followed me and many children
    Shacked by the torments of changing power
    And how we are determined to survive in the ruins
    To become the best of a person we could be

    Sounds of the Night

    The sounds of the night are loud
    Sirens and screams of crowds
    Men and women with signs
    Their future is now behind
    All plans are put on pause
    Is it really for a good cause?

    To settle a score, creating forlore
    The blood and the gore
    More hearts getting tore
    The tears coming more
    It’s sad and it’s poor
    And now....what comes next?

    Oh, Baltimore

    There are riots in the streets of Baltimore
    Ignorance is spreading like wildfire
    False news breeds even more hate
    The ones on top
    Far off, in their mansion
    Who will Never experience
    The poverty
    Never feel the pain,
    Spread the lies for all they will gain
    Keep us distracted
    Keep us divivded
    But theres people starving in Baltimore
    Of all races stuck in a hole with no way out . No money for rent nor for food
    You claim it's our own fault
    As if we're all lazy fools...
    But keep in mind
    We have No rich parents to pay for our schools
    We can not help into what family we are born
    Schools with no walls,
    Parks have no trees,
    Only Empathy can kill this hate
    But with your lack of compassion, i fear its too late
    A ten year old was killed by police for skateboarding ..but it wasnt on the news
    that wasnt your child so you have nothing to lose
    There are people in the streets of Baltimore
    knowing no-one cares
    Hopeless
    with tears in their eyes
    Rioting the streets and you still wonder why

    Please everyone pray for the riots because they are still destroying our lands.
    Riots is not organized at all, they are doing it the wrong way.
    I know they are trying to prove a point, but vandalism and destroying properties is not the answer. By Ciara Webb

    "Look darling, we've finally built our dream house amongst the hustle and bustle of this city with all our blood and sweat."
    Said Mr. Shekhawat with a pleasing look towards his wife.
    It wasn't constructed with bricks and cement. It was made up of emotions and memories.

    None could anticipate that after several years, their own children would witness this house being burnt down right in front of their eyes!

    Holi De

    A building was ruptured
    a religion was captured

    They were all taught a myth
    so they followed their dim wit

    Three thousand people died
    someone's ethnicity was denied

    Blood was everywhere
    the nation trembled and lacked care

    Historically no body knows
    but anyways people took vows

    People were blind
    they killed there own kind

    Eventually the blood shall be paid
    the king who pelted stones shall be laid

    The souls of the innocent cry out
    God is closer whether you talk or shout.

    Society

    How easy it is to point fingers, how easy it is to blame it on everyone else.
    The pain inside lingers, this is a turbulent mind with thoughts that are dispersed.
    Can't you let it go? Holding onto grudges will never let you grow.

    Life is not fair
    By: Layla Nikkel
    Inspired by the George Floyd rioting


    People fighting and rioting
    Gunshots scattered through air
    This is not a tranquil time
    But life is not that fair

    Many citizens enduring
    Often, we’d only stare
    So much for peaceful protesting
    But this life isn’t fair

    Tear gas bombs cloud our saddened eyes
    Wendy’s up in a flare
    Smoke and ashes fills the dark sky
    Because life isn’t fair

    Black lives matter says everyone
    Everyone seems to care
    The shedding of blood, the splatter
    Proof that life is not fair

    Calm protesting turns to riots
    Something’s never repair
    But people unarmed are injured
    Because life isn’t fair

    We should put down all our weapons
    We try to stop despair
    We will all stand strong together
    To make this life more fair

    Late Night Panic and Denial

    Swept inside the laboring machine
    Sliced open by its gears
    Wishing silence would sprawl
    Wish I’d fall back to sleep

    Smoke coddles the tyrants
    Shorting out the controls  
    Full lives feed the furnace
    Wish I’d just fall asleep

    Though I’ve been far away  
    Safe and sound on higher ground
    Unscathed, still I pray
    “It’s all a dream”
    “I’ve been asleep”
