Society Today

It doesn’t matter if your white or black,
Respect is the one things people nowadays lack;
Discriminating one another,
Because of color and creed,
Why can’t people just live in peace?
Everyday another fight,
Another innocent life,
Putting people down due to where they come from,
Where has the respect gone?
What do we achieve from this aggravation?
Can we ever bring a change to this situation?
Is there any solution?

Go down to the city,
Maybe you’ll feel pity,
Every where,
Crime rates are rising,
More and more people are despising.
Teenage pregnancy has become a norm,
Lives are being torn,
Only we can put an end to this,
If we work together,
Maybe it’s something we can accomplish.

    Well done Asra. You have painted the real picture of recent social trends. People are given respect on the basis of their races ,places and wealth. Let me read u a famous urdu poet ''Adam kay kisi roop kee tazleel na karna'' ''phirtaa hai zamanay main khudaa bhais badal kar''
