Angels always cries, human targets, winning spirits and the desire of being great have turned this world to be the word of pity, we feel sorry for ourselves sir. as I wrote Hear the children crying, the world should cry for itself

Like the poet if there is an Angel within a man, the angel will cry on the violence throughout the world. Loved the poem and loved its message, it has an universal appeal.
