Atleast Say No - Poem by Hasmukhlal Amathalallal
I give no credence to rumors
I care less about their mentors
It is their aim to drive wedge
We must really think and come of an age
The country can go into flames
If we do nothing and pass on the blames
It is making direct impact on our preparedness
We may have no option left than helplessly witness
Where does it take us for honest and just fight?
We can do reasonably perform well within our rights
It is no good to send innocents to death wall
How can we blame others when invites imminent fall?
Nobody can be brought down to knee
No doubt you are by all means free
It doesn’t allow you to act contrary
Some drawbacks may be there but temporary
Whole system can’t be brought down to an abrupt halt
It is not holy war to thrust upon invisible assault
What does it result into at the end of the day?
It can be sorted out in peaceful way
Have we forgotten the human values?
Why do we differ in our approach and views?
Why suddenly we turn to violent methods?
Are we loosing our sympathy and hold?
We try for the extreme end with no aim
The murderers and we are same
We have lost faith and corrupted the system
We are acting as if it is our routine and custom
We love to hate only to prove arrogance
It has got no relevance and sense
Who know when will God come in disguise?
Will we able to stand firm and recognize?
We can’t side with the destructive forces
They may try to prevail up on us to coarse
It is their simple tactics to create wedge and rift
We must ensure that there is no deviation or shift
Rumors are like wild fire
No sensible person can opt for or admire
It can engulf entire area within seconds
We can’t appreciate their stand and second
We are heavily banking up on hear say
We take no steps to find out the means and ways
We are most sufferers at the end of the day
We still hope good counsel to prevail and stay
Let us fight this menace resolutely and prevail
All the possibilities explored and availed
How come one ideology influences our national heritage?
We have all the honor and dignity to take advantage
It should not slip away from us
We should thrive and thrust
Rest all will follow and result
Nation can be spared from shame and insult
