Fighting our own cruel self

God gifted us with a life so pristine and calm
But human selfishness overpowered all its charm. 
This species which evolved from apes
Now seems to be turning back to the same.

They are titled to be the most sensible being among all
Owing to their cruel behaviour, now humanity is left out to crawl.
There is slavery, murder, rape and terrorism
Above the bond of love comes racism.

In an attempt to rationalize each and every bit
Everyday many crimes they commit.
Darkness overshoots the bright morning
With a news of how brutality left another girl mourning.
With every passing day crime and violence continues to escalate
Leaving a little hope for kindness to find the way to penetrate.

Now it's hard to proclaim the vantage of mankind
The lust for money and power has turned them blind.
News channels and literature are cluttered
With ugly face of hate and innocence left shattered.
They don't understand innocence is very fragile
With ruptured souls, they won't find peace even after miles.

Everything around stings by the double shadow
They are running so much after power, someone just them to slow.
Why don't they understand by being so helpless and low
Somewhere they will never be able make it home.

It's the peak time to stand against violence
Speak out the right by breaking the silence.
Put the pieces back together to heal the broken souls
Free yourself of the chains otherwise nothing will be left if time rolls.

After the battle with darkness when sun begins to rise
The bright yellow rays would bring the promise of a cherished life.

Father to his daughter

When she first looked at him and clinched his hand
He found a love which only he could understand.
The happiest moment of his life was when she spoke her first word
He has captured those memories in an album, now lying in his cupboard.

When with her small feet, towards him she took her first step 
With arms open wide to embrace her, he was standing at the other end.
He promised that he would keep her safe through each day of her life
Yet, all the while, he knew her princess would grow up to be someone's wife.

When clouds of uncertainty drowned, he helped her smile 
He taught her this is the only thing which will help her strive.
There were moments when his eyes were filled with pride
Not always that she won but he knew that how hard she tired.
On her, he has laid down all his fame
His chest fills with pride when someone addresses him by her name.
He knew when to guide her and when to let go
The latter the hardest which only parents know.

As he takes her hand in his and walk down the aisle 
You can see how proud he is and see his eyes smile.
She is a princess,her daddy's little girl
She is dressed in red with her hair slightly curled.
"Time flies", he thinks looking at her face
He notices his child turning into a woman's grace.

Today he has been asked to give away all he owned
Which is hard for him as she has been his lifeline since the day she was born.
Few moments from now, someone else's hand she will hold 
As she is about to begin this new journey of memories to unfold.
He is holding on to tears of sadness filled with joy
Now He has to let her go and face the hardest goodbye.
