This is the story of a common man who faces threat from hypocrisy, intolerance, sorrow etc.

Stall and Decieve

As the light rays of the Sun pierced the cool breeze,
On another such dull, disappointing winter's noon,
He lay idle just like any common jobless struggler, loafing with ease,
When a bubbly bairn gently slapped him and greeted him with a smile, so opportune,
He decided to cease being gloomy, In a moment he felt lively and glad,
One can only try again hoping for impending fortunes, wishing for better days ahead,
Right about then he noticed, there were hostile crowds increasing in number,
Around the square, And as he talked to one he discovered that it was,
Another case of conflict of inter-religious domination, Instances of madness in ages of dogmatic slumber,
So he acted intuitively and shouted out loud asking them to wait,
When he had there attention he began to say,

"Those who want to kill, slay
Know that you are also slaying your own family,
Those who don't care if they die today,
Feel free to drop dead,
Don't add more sorrow to humanity's dismay,
But those who want to live and were misled,
Drop yours arms, this life is filled with charms,
Survive, Try, Act, Learn, Love, there are better days ahead,
Empathize and avert another victory of injustice over ignorance,
Condemn those who want to harm others to fulfill there own lust,
Humanity has potential to recover from the Worst,
Don't be blinded by pretenses, Only to follow the deceiver,
In the art of living we still have great heights to tread,
Be patient, comprehend, there are better days ahead".

Just then a shot was fired and the bullet created a hole though his head,
The sound created a frenzy and the followers panicked, within moment many were dead,
For better Co-existence, Governance, better Judgment, Conduct is needed,
For better perception, Virtue, better Experiences, Empathy is needed,
And even if we had all or nothing of what we need, There will always be better days ahead.

Powerful and uplifting. Those out to kill others are losers and dimwits. No one has any right to impose their belief on others. We seem to never learn - let us do so by watching the supposed inferior species, how thankful they are for their days in the sun - siva
