Plight of Inhumanity

That pain still triggers off

on seeing inhumanity rules.

Gender discrimination or religion distinction,

floats like fishes in water.

In abundance and in bulk,

they move in multitude.

Anywhere and everywhere,

people get bullied for their caste,

creed, gender or colour.

Why do people differentiate?

From where does this come from?

Birth is given to everyone by Almighty,

Alas, things don’t change!

Does God teach all this?

Why poor are bullied,

And rich become insane.

Cruelty is the game,

for todays indifferent world.

Girls don’t do this, boys do any crap.

Why is the society becoming dispassionate?

The questions remain unanswered.

The falsehood and jealousy,

the disparity and rudeness,

all flatter their wings and fly carefree.

And what we do?

We smile and say- ‘things won’t change.

Let the world get ruined, And we’ll move on!’

    There is an utter indifference to all the thorny issues dealing with inhumanity…but through our writings we might bring some change,… at least some awakening in people lacking conscience…
