Will they succeed?

Whenever we, the ordinary citizens,
Start breathing in peace,
They devise a plot to create unrest.
They make us fight,
Not allowing us to make a situation light.
In name of religion and caste,
In name of Azaan and fast.
In name of race and gender,
Never they think of subtle issue ,
Which can otherwise prove too tender.
They make us distrust our most trusted ones,
They make us animals and we forget we are humans.
As I shed silent,dry tears,
Watching all of us argue over misunderstood things,
I fear ,will they succeed ,finally in their evil whims?
