Nightmare Times


From screaming  headlines to breaking news

It’s  nightmare time, as terror concocts toxic brews


Be it Brussels, India, Twin Towers , Turkey or France

The world appears to have gone into a terror trance


Innocents pay with blood  life and limb

Sitting ducks to a conscience gone numb


When will it stop – this madness in division?

When will we wake up – to a new voice of unison?


Together, maybe we can make the nightmares stop 

Together we can onto the bus of love n reason hop.


Into that long forgotten dream of “heaven of freedom”,

Let the country, nay let the world today, awake! 


Freedom of expression, freedom of choice of religion

Freedom of belief,  freedom of sanity and reason!
