I am not a poet so I am not very good with words,

Therefore help me Oh my readers - to find a voice, which would be clearly heard.

I want to talk about some broken dreams,

Tears shed from the eyes of homeless and the agony of their unheard screams.

I need a song to explain the emotions of a newly wedded wife,

Whose husband is fighting at border, on the edge of his life.

I don't know, how to explain it to an angry brother,

why there is scarcity of resources on one side, while presence of abundance on the other.

I want to narrate how a mother feels,

When she had to walk thousand miles, to feed her child with one time meal

I want to understand can a starving stomach hear words like love and compassion

Can a poet whose ink is dipped in blood; write with comfortable ease about his passion?

Finally ! I want to ask, can we shed our greed to live in unity on the same land under one Sun

Can there be a day when sound of music will echo louder than the sound of Gun?
