Wither in strife?
The enormity of the situation
Cannot be explained,
As humans, in the suffering
We should be pained.
In Pakistan, the latest atrocity
And so many innocent children faced
How disgusting it is, the young
Blood they spill,
And they think their ‘mission'
Is greater still?
How painful! the state of the parents
Who sent them to their doom,
And sadly, on their conscience,
This will forever loom.
Those who lost their lives, the sheer
Number'll fill shelves,
And those who survive, remain
Ghosts of themselves.

All to religion,
And for these deeds they will
Solely be shunned.
For the religion of peace says,
save a man, and you save mankind,
You kill a man, and you
Kill the whole humankind.
So it's the world's solemn request,
Put down your guns,
And in this way stop humiliating
The world implores you, please take this
Lay down your arms and make
