Sixteenth December, The Blackest Day

The time has come to fight against Devils
Who have no category, no religion, no heart.
How much blood do they need to drink, to bathe?
They are really coward, the creatures of hell.

In the name of 'Jihad', in the name of religion
They are fighting, fighting against humanity.
Who has given the right to kill the students,
The lovely flowers in the garden of mankind?

The earth is truly Heaven; in man God lives.
We are 7 billion people living on this earth.
Just few of these are against humanity.
Why should we allow them to do whatever they want?

O my dear brothers and sisters! please wake up.
Break the walls of discrimination and racism.
We, all are one; our religion is humanity.
Please destroy terrorism and save mankind.

In Asia, Europe, America, Africa, Australia-
Everywhere terrorists are killing mankind.
Why are we so afraid? Are we coward?
The Devils are coward; they should be afraid.

Political leaders are playing game with humanity
Only to hold the rank and position, to earn money.
Uproot terrorism before killing the terrorists.
Please be broad minded and work for mankind.

My dear brothers and sisters, my dear friends!
Please feel the pain and agony of those parents
Whose innocent children are killed by Devils.
The victims are not only theirs but also ours.

Force can not kill terrorism, the enemy of man.
Only education can create love and affection,
Brotherhood and humanity in us, in our heart.
Cross the bar of narrow nationalism and faith.

O my dear friends! please be courageous.
Remember! real heroes can never be defeated.
Every single man is just like a drop of water.
Our unity can make the ocean of strength in us.

To save our Heaven, be Malala, be Kailash.
No warmonger can cure terrorism, the cancer.
Dear friends! wake up to fight for humanity
So that 16th December may not come back.

Emotional but true, where we all need to join the hands, nice one, thank you.
A very powerful write.10
Dipankar, this is truly a profound and extremely emotional protest song from the heart. Joan Baez and Bob Dylan would be proud. You are very courageous spiritual and brilliant in this, and mostly all, of your poetry. What the United Nations needs is leaders with your kind of passion. People who walk the talk. Then maybe, just maybe, the children of the future could return to paradise on earth. This poem is my choice for Poem Of The Day! Congratulations on an excellent job! You may wish to read Child Soldier.
The clarion call of this poem shall awaken many a dormant heart to take up the fight for the cause of humanity. Truly an inspirational write.
A powerful call for humanism. Full of empathy, giving a much-needed lesson of peace, love and humanity. Words that the world must pay attention to. A10
