Humanity where is thy heart, seeing you don't see, hearing yet don't hear,
The cries of men dying in hundreds, tortured, slit and murdered,
Wailing women raped, enslaved, degraded beyond animals,
Children maimed and killed, eyes filled with fear and dread, far away from home and security,
Blood flowing in streams, innocent blood of people who wished a simple life and small dreams,
Yet torn apart and destroyed for no fault of theirs, humanity where art thou, don't you see!
Murderers with blood dripping from their hands, roaming like wild hordes of hyenas,
Eyes blood shot with cries of Gods who needs to be defended and satiated by the blood of innocent humans,
What kind of a God is he who needs a defence from mortal humans,
What kind of a God is he who offers paradise in return for a fellow creatures life,
Does God delight in the blood of His own creation, does he delight in forced submission?
Humanity where art thou, don't you see, don't you hear, why do you just stand and stare?
Listen to your heart, a little tug in the corner, a tug of love, a tug of care, for those dying and suffering,
Uprooted and thrown asunder from their hearth and their kin, not knowing where to run or where to hide,
Clinging on to their little ones covering in fear, not knowing will they see each other again.
Far away yes we are, insulated, satisfied and well fed, running behind things of merry and living a life carefree,
Saddened by the gruesome pictures and breaking news, echoing voice of sympathy and declaring solidarity,
We are truly shocked to see the lifeless limb of a little angel washed ashore,
Yet not willing to lift a finger in the cause of humanity, we talk, we analyse, we discuss animatedly,
All the while gleefully looking at the TRP' rating climbing higher and the money falling in the coffers,
Humanity where art thou, don't you really see, don't you really hear?
Be still ! shut out the noise and the clamouring, listen deeply with in, listen to that little tug,
love will come overflowing, we are created for that, to love, to care and to give,
to wipe away a tear and console, to hug and to cheer, life is too short to be lived away for oneself,
make it count, make it long, live for others too.
