The people rush down the road,eager to reach home.
A young mother carries pastries for her little one,
An older man, carrying bundles of worry rushes home
Two girls, giggling and skipping carry purchases home!
A college boy lost in thoughts about a girl, walks home.
The world erupts suddenly, earth, flesh, iron, with a bang!
The tableaux, frozen for a split , limbs, arms, all wrong,
Fixed in a grimace of pain and anguish of a life cut so short!
The scream rents the air of a thousand souls crying what
They had done to deserve such a rude and violent end!
A thousand dreams cut short, pastries scattered, and
Romance brought short by a bang, a bomb placed by
A man so depressed, that he would cut short dreams of
Thousands, a man so empty of emotion that he’d be an
Automaton controlled by others, becomes part of all of it!
The world wakes up ,
Moment later, more sad and grieved,
Wiser, but anguished.
This a world where
The innocent bear the brunt of hate,
Lives cut short!
The little child weeps on for a mother who will never
Come, the promise of pastries vaporised by a bang!
The dream of a lovely girl in college remains a dream.
The giggles of the girls lost in a moment of cruelty!
This is a world ending not in a bang, but a whimper!
