here






Twilight converged

Creating a prism of
hues

Night melted.


The sound of grenades

Broke the peace of
dawn.




Alert sounded

Forces ready with
arms

Fought bravely

Posing tough to
enemies.




In exchange of fires

Blood oozed

Lives stilled

Of brave soldiers

Who fought till the
last drop of blood?




Dreams of mothers

Wives & brothers

Was shattered by the
undeclared storm

Withering the lives
of innocent children.

State gives honour

Flag hang low

To lives sacrificed

Saving the pride of
country.


Salutations of guns

Roars in the air

In honor of the
deceased

Declaring bravest martyrs
of land.




One question

Haunts my mind

Are the killings
justified?


We are just been
losers

In the fire of terror

Innocents losing life

Families & kin

Will face the wrath

Of missing their loved
ones.




Let’s pray

For the departed
souls

For their grief-stricken
families

To give courage to bear the show.

Let’s unite for peace

Bringing in harmony

Life is short &
precious

Let’s be cautious

Saving our country & people

From the claws of
terror.

The poem written by me on the recent incident of #UriAttack, these incidents churn my feelings and I go dumb and my fingers move to scribble the boiling thoughts. We are losing lives and peace and the families who give their son to guard our country faces the wrath of terror. In honor of the deceased, my heart grieves for them and My take in the form of a poem shapes in.
