Let us live for a while
Would you be able to face the mirror?
with a fake smile of greed
Would you be able to march forward?
though your blood drenched street
Would you take your child to that park?
where sulphur used to spark
or to that school or graveyard where
there are healing bullet marks
The naughty ''little boy'' is dead
And Buddha forgot to smile.
Please humans let us live
..... at least for a while......
