Sorry Neighbor.

I,

If I may,

Apologize.

I have been,

A devil in disguise.

 

Oh what ‘Aman ki Asha’?

What peace,

If I may ask?

My fellow countrymen,

A fallacy in which they bask..

 

I have killed love,

Harmony,

and every beautiful feeling.

I know hate,

Jealousy,

And why would I even conceal it?

 

Forget about a country,

Forget about a state.

The street that I live in,

There are many people I hate.

 

I may,

If I want to,

Wear a mask of love.

But really I’m a villain,

Benevolence, I don’t speak of!

 

And why,

Why on earth will I be ashamed?

And critical of myself?

Aren’t we all in this together?

How well we repel!

 

And teaching hatred,

To our kids.

Doesn’t sound so filthy.

“He did first, then I did”,

We find it healthy!

 

And isn’t this,

What’s going on?

From the past 70 years?

Blaming each other and all of the rest,

“Uh! The mistake is THEIRS!”. (always)

 

There are widows on both sides,

Childless parents,

And also orphans.

But who cares to budge, my dear,

We are totally okay with coffins!

 

Well,

We do shed a tear or two,

Whenever a soldier dies.

But the martyr can’t be yours,

‘Cause otherwise we will rejoice!

 

A fake motherland,

I like to worship,

With all my heart.

But only for a day or two,

Rest of the days I’m a total pervert!

 

Bring on,

The next 70 years now,

Shall we?

The nations we both so love,

Let’s turn ’em into a debris!

 

XOXO,

H

  1. Reblogged this on Livelythoughts and commented:
    Its a beautiful piece that should be spread all over the two nations so that they understand. Actually, politics play the role apart and common people, soldiers have to face the consequences. Instead of celebrating the independence for both the nations on two separate days, we should spread love and love across both the nations. Its very difficult to make these two nations “One” but atleast we can try and take a step to “Sorry” each other being neighbors for all the bad doings and live happily.

  2. Its a beautiful piece that should be spread all over the two nations so that they understand. Actually, politics play the major role apart in both the nations, across the world for creating differences and common people, soldiers have to face the consequences. Instead of celebrating the independence for both the nations on two separate days, we should spread love and love across both the nations. Its very difficult to make these two nations “One” but atleast we can try and take a step to “Sorry” each other, being neighbors for all the bad doings and live happily.
