A memory, evil from every corner

 

Penetrating my eyes, so painful

 

Stiffen my nerves, so horrible.

 

I still remember.
 

 

 

Deep down here in my bleak heart,

 

Incarcerates a monotonous desolation

 

Creeping, creeping and bellowing distinctly.

 

I still remember.

 

 

The crushing echoes of pains,

 

The cracked lips being sealed,

 

Brings no good to the poor but cruel.

 

I still remember.

 

 

Tingling to behold and gaze,

 

As the sun punishes the young,

 

Working, training like a cow plowing,

 

I still remember.

 

 

For moral converts into immoral,

 

Women and even maiden,

 

Controlling like a puppet for prostitution.

 

I still remember.

 

 

Jobless and helpless the students are,

 

Like a barefoot wandering on fire.

 

No direction, reason but frustration.

 

I still remember.

 

 

The ruthless torturing of people,

 

And of the innocent infants, so vicious,

 

The voracious lion-liked minds that exist,

 

I still remember.

 

 

The limitations slither over me,

 

The rights and fairness have run away,

 

Reserving me no more room than the universe,

 

I still remember.

 

 

Time spins; praying to gods and goddesses,

 

Craving for peace amidst mourning,

 

The silhouettes fading of wars defeated.

 

I still remember.

 

 

Where civilization lies and grows,

 

Nastiness breeds in forlorn streets.

 

And an unfit hollow awaits the coffin to fill.

 

Saving hand, free me from the cell where I belong.
