It is about our usual attitude that sometimes we tend to forget other people's feelings. As a result, we hurt them unwittingly. It is still but good to have great sensitivity towards others feelings.

Listen to that soft voice inside you...

Lend an ear to understand its pleaings.

The sound mimics that of a cry,

Or a distant wail of a broken soul...

It could be nothing to you

It could be nonsense, but then

Just try to listen and then you'll know

It needs freedom, could you give it though?

The shadows kept on following,

Though the darkness blanket the land..

Through the lenses. I've viewed clearly

It's the suffering soul that wanted to breakfree...

But then all of us remained deaf,

Mute and numb! No one listen to relieve

The pains of the dying music

Until such time when the melody faded to silence.

So tell me, how does it feel?

How can you explain what we've done?

It's so shameful letting that mere voice fade away,

Locking it in a coffin that ended its melodious idiosyncracy!.
