Hear the call to be free
My life was a dream I didn’t appreciate
With beauty, life and happiness I didn’t create
Without asking, I had been granted
That the sun was shining and the trees had been planted.
Then what went wrong, what was my crime?
That the rivers dried up and were coated in grime
That the sun felt cold and the birds wouldn’t sing
That we no longer knew the joy a home could bring.
Life was a struggle and there was daily pain
Toiling for answers in the hot sun left us drained
The places I had known my entire life
Were all sacrificed for someone’s else’s strife
But it was not only buildings that were ground into dust
We lost our hopes, our dreams and our trust
Oft repeated as that is, things will never be the same
Especially when people close to you have gone blind or deaf or lame
Life and love were torn away
Many journeys and meetings went astray
Fresh rain can’t wash away the dirt left behind
New grass can’t make us forget the sadness, the hurt in our minds
Our live are diseased, polluted forever
Even now when we’re older, matured and clever
Questions we can’t answer and the nightmares of our youth
Still haunt us today despite others’ ruth
Consider this please, consider the cost
Consider what all will be lost
The people, the conditions, the things you value will be gone
And then you’ll have to start again and move on
Stop this destruction from ruining your days
Say no to nuclear weapons and make others change their ways
Remember, only differences in thinking shouldn’t cause it allWhen all it takes is to hear the call.
I've been pretty busy handling republic day celebrations, sports day, homework and self reproach. I'm trying to catch up on reading and actual studying. And there's like a hundred different things running through my mind at the same time, so things in my life are a little strained.
Most interesting event lately: Being reminded over and over that I'll soon be in 12th a.k.a. board year. Boo!
Yeah, I'm not even feeling at ease. Emotions have been running high this last week with anger, self-annoyance and some moments of happiness. But now that the weekend is here, I'm feeling much better. Finally I'll be able to do some actual study, the reason for which I go to school. And I'll get to face to projects which count in my finals. And my eyes feel sore already.
Wish me luck in the new week. And the same to all my readers too :)
