The Call

Entertainment in any sort finds a place in Headlines these days,but this plea of a mother is something beyond mention. Going across the situation in Syria, I found this video and penned down a few words, just to remind ourselves,if humanity actually exists?

They say “We have traversed the globe,explored the unexplored, discovered the undiscovered”,
They say “Our gates to the Mars are Open,
They say “Humans are the ones, unparalleled, unsurpassed!
They say “We have the bleeding heart”!

Then why does she stand alone,abandoned and disowned?
Neither has a home nor sine qua non,
Sitting with some clone and a daughter of her own, on just a mat and some stone?
The six year old lies just unknown, we don’t know what all, she might have undergone,
All she moans to the people overgrown -Open the doors to the world All have known!
And all they do is to stand uncondoned!
But you say the world has “Grown”?

Then why does she stand alone, abandoned and disowned?
No desires of a gemstone, Nor wanting a life of throne,
Just some bread, with some tutelage alone,
To make her daughter feel she has been homegrown,
Take her away, make her your own, All she needs is a chaperone,
All she moans to the people overgrown -Open the doors to the world All have known!
And all they do is to stand uncondoned!

Think about her like your own, You might not have a bread and be all alone,
Think about her like your own, no bed,no thermal of her own,
Think about her like like your own, About all her daughter has borne,
Think about her like your own, think when she has all gone!
Think about her like your own, before the time has already flown!
