Redlights

Urge me to run away,

Across boundaries of wars,

And black mornings,

Eventually turning into ashes,

While deafened by the cacophony.

Mothers prayed for their children ,

Prayed for a safe haven.

They saw the fading light of homes

Being burnt to death

While the epic glory of tireless bloodshed,

Made way into a deadspin of history.

Wombs were sought-after

For no Haven this safe exists.

For your punch on those keys,

Is a rebellion against the tide.

We were taught to dream,

For a home of fortitude, love.

Limping on my belief of mercy,

I mark you on that golden masonry.

Waving at me, flickering into this daunting sunlight.

We’ve certainly been raised,

In a way that dreads tears.

Being a guiding light on the verge of a shutdown,

In itself is a kryptonite.

To all those who yearn for home,

A place to delve and relish,

Savour and plenish,

Until our kinship outlives all the perils.

We’re too young to talk about “Home”.

Meaningless, yet a delight in one’s own plight.

We’re wearing sleeves, worth mourning,

In this stricken Paradise across borders.


As I’m hanging in there, you’re doing the same I hope..with this effort to sue up your minds… I’d like you to be thankful for once..this was needed..we had to STOP!

Keep hanging…take care

Thank you.
