PROVOKING THOUGTS

Where is our defense? Suspense!
Where do we go from here? Fear!
Stop the nonsense. No pretense.
Stop the mad Bear coming near
Seems the time is right, to fight
Seems this’ a game, with no blame
We must fight but for right
We must tame every name
Where are our mistakes? At stake?
What is the way forward? Rightward!
What can you also make? Just flakes?
Where are we toward? The upward!
Am afraid, the table is turned. Wrong turn
So we all must wake up. Don’t give up.
The fear, we all must burn. The right turn.
So we all can stay up. Always take up.
What do you think about the system?
Is there any room for betterment?
What solution can save the system?
Who can guarantee our betterment?  

Can you read the signs in the air?
Analyzing, do you think they are fair?
So where do we go from hear?
Is there any hope coming near?
The battle is getting more startling
As we started the harder battling
Who is going to hear should we call?
Who is there to support when we fall?
Seems our hopes are molten. Destitution!
But we still trust to revitalize. Possession!
There is a question I always keep asking
But it seems everyone kept masking
So I am waiting to finalize this quest
And set ablaze the troubles in the west
This poetic and emotional piece, 
Though thought provoking, is for peace
I pray the star of our freedom shines
Just like the bright morning sun shines
So we can understand hidden things
And always do but better things.
