The slogan was repeated, nth number of times,
But, have things changed.
Nothing new, cropped up; still men lose their lives,
Again it is the same.
Brides are being burnt, people manipulate lies,
Corruption is still tamed.
A bomb explosion everywhere, the newspaper sighs,
Who is to be, after all, blamed?
How long things will go, nothing happens and time flies,
Who will remove the stain?
Undeserved are still progressing, talent that money buys,
Deserved are once more drained.
The rich exploiting the poor, hankering after the prize,
Slaves are over again caned.
Terrorist’s secretly using power, ruling in guise,
Politicians are always gained.
The freedom fighters fought and sacrificed their lives,
When will their dreams be ingrained?
It is now or never, all of us should, join into ties,
Because, it is the time to change.
The time to change
The time to change.
