Dark is the night
An eerie silence prevails
The ghosts of the dead trees mourn
In the silent agony of lost life
The birds flee, the animals escape
The cruel slaughter of life
The Exodus begins ……

Says God,” I shall remain with thee, where ever you go”
Little consolation does it impart
To the scared soul of massacred mankind
Life and death go side by side
In this ecosystem of life’s desert
Thorns in plenty
And the minority of discriminated flowers
Trying, but, in vain, to spread
The fragrance of life
What else can the terrified beings do
The Exodus continues …….. 

But where do the creatures with
Ruptured hearts and petrified
Clueless brains proceed
From one desert to another do they go
Searching ……..
Searching for survival, existence
Searching …… for life
The nights remain dark
The silence as cruel as ever
The creatures, but, are no more threatened
The beings do not possess
A terrified soul anymore
They possess the dead soul of life
Snatched away at the hands of humanity
And what would possibly be more terrifying than death itself
The Exodus ends.

*******I know its confusing, but if you keep your minds open, there may just be something 
to understand. Its confusing because it was written during a very difficult period of my life. so 
just read. Thanks**********
