What shall I Wish

The dawn broke glittering and chirping,
The newspaper boy wheeled into,
The newsletter read the lines,
Kidnaps, violence, riots, rapes, theft, murder, bombs dropped onto civilians
invasion, gang wars, homicide, scandals, scams, anarchy, chaos……!!!!

News scroll portrayed inert words and lifeless lines;
Cops, Judiciary, Politician and cataract Medias
all deserted the needy and drooped into silence. 

Pleaded the ill-treated and oppressed among men, women and children whose 
cry were “Our Lord!.. Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; 
and raise for us from You one who will protect,
and raise for us from You one who will help”.

Responded none,
But only the resonance;
Not a stern stride against,
Not a folded fist against,
Not a bold shout against,
Not even a broken heart against these mournful statuses.

The dark clouds of silence veiled the world,
Unable to hold the agony, the sky wept,
Drizzling and showering into fury adorned by the light and thunder,
Awakening the lifeless and rejuvenating the soulless;
Yet not the conscience of the,conscious, bi-legged.

All drooped as if doomed,
The benign angels too ceased the prayers of peace.

The query of the Most Merciful Lord
“Why don’t you…?”  


“Verily, will not you change the state of people who do 
in no way wish themselves to be so; then why us, in vain?”

Alas!!!, brought into action, severe ordeals by the Lord, the dreadful fire swept, 
Drastic Tsunamis, trembling earthquakes, Hurricanes, famine, drought...

For, if it was The Sustainer and The Angels to revamp the planet;
then what the cause for the mankind to exist on earth…???

The shiver led to consciousness;
Come; arise for the helpless and suppressed,
Propagate virtue and demolish the vices; 
For, neither Moses,
nor Jesus,
nor Daveed
nor Mohammed, (peace be upon them), to come, 
to seize the hands of the culprit,

Rather, time awaits and longs you, Samaritans to do the verdict.

Know my friend It’s, “Miles to go before you sleep”

Now tell me, what shall I wish u...?? 
A Good Morning or Mourning…..!!!

And what do you wish and will for…???
