Why is it so?


Why is it so?

The sun is shining bright in open sky
I see darkness all around
Birds hopping in fronds and chirping sharp
But I can’t hear a sound

Why is it so?

Night is usurping the fields and houses
Exhausted, all are home bound
Air is filled with sweet talks and nice songs
For me love can’t be found

Why is it so?

So many smiling faces walking the streets
They make such beautiful sights
To win their hearts and remain happy
I have to go through so many fights

Why is it so?

Selling my hands to help them survive
I fall prey to disgust and hate
In their hearts seeds of love never sprout
As if misery is written in my fate

Why is it so?

Their lives float in sea of goodness and love
Mine just swims in an untidy pool
Horses of good fortune win races for them
Mine stands as an obstinate mule

Why is it so?

Till how long I have to witness this play
Is there not an early end?
Am I the last one to suffer through the games?
Or my progeny will have to go with the trend?

Why is it so?
