Times Of Grief - 26/11 - Poem by Dr Anish Mathew John

(A reflection of the merciless killings in Mumbai by terrorists on 26/11)

A day it came a day it went
Pain and cry all left in grief
Scar it made it hides behind
Still shows the stain with dreary face.

Friends they were both kith and kin
All lost at stretch with eyes all filled
Painted red were streets and straits
All tells the tale of grisly deeds.

Distress, anger and fear around
Shaken we were at all one go
Hand in hand let’s stand behind
With martyrs them, they gave it all.

Shoulder we gave for heads to cry
For sure you knew that all were one
Arms wide stretched and open hearts
Stood all them true in words and deeds.

Time has come for us to rise
Time to prove that we won’t fail
With pride atop let’s stand behind
It’s time to shine and see all fine.
