for the kashmir earthquake victims

looking into her eyes

i saw shock & numbness
of seeing a playground turning into graveyard
of a heaven turned into hell

no more schools
no more playmates
no more family
no more childhood

all that is left
is death & devastation

in his bewildered eyes
i saw the questions of a nation
is there any one in the rubble
has anyone survived

no more villages
no more towns
no more jobs
no more future

all that is left
are ruins & cremation

there is a father in that picture
there is a daughter there too
and someone is tearing inside me
asking what I’ll do

what will i do my dear friend
and what will you do
