Can You Feel It?
Can you feel the voice of an infant’s cry
of thirst and hunger for mother’s arm?
Can you feel the tears on a young girl’s face
that blurred her vision to see an empty bed?
Can you fill the space in a husband’s arms
tightly closed on his chest by her absence?
Why! Why one must destroy a happy home
with a mother and wife so loving now gone?
Is it all about our faith that has to be divided
in groups to prove who’s right and wrong?
Is it all about money, fame, power to conquer
the world and destroy it if they can’t win?
Is it all about the colors of our skins to differ
our cultures and traditions and fight for it?
Or, is it all greed and jealousy to leave marks
or scars in our hearts only to visit the past?
How! How can we forget when we know hate
seethed in one’s mind to do all its caused?
And Why! why can’t we all love and respect
one’s life as it meant to stay until it’s end?
