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.
