There Was Nothing Between Them - The Pulwama Attack - Poem by Samanyan Lakshminarayanan

what was this bravery?
on either side
both had to die to show it
one knowingly...the other
taken by surprise

the one knowing....
what was his wanting?
to get transformed into a demon
no trace of human in him
brainwashed in the name of many
a nailing reason...
should have been there
to cause this tranformation

the unknowing...
what was his wanting?
to have become a Martyr
a living may be
had his little daughter's face in mind...
when he breathed his last
never lasted to see her first smile...
the nailed one

between the nailer and the nailed...
there was 'NOTHING'
this idiotic 'NOTHING'
had everything but humanity to it
religion, language, nation...all this
in the name of 'TERROR'
the sweet differences have been made bitter...
bitter to terrorise
how do we harmonise

oh lord..if any
let harmony prevail
let humanity dawn
let this ' NOTHING' vanish
let humanity dawn on all alive
