Today I would like to highlight the issue of how some people with vested interest are taking advantage of youth by channelizing their mind and body in a particular direction. At that young age, in many countries, the mind and thoughts of young generation - vulnerable as they are, are not under their own control. Not having the ability to clearly differentiate the right from wrong and with thoughts of idealism and ideals filling every corner of their brain, they are the easiest lot to be brainwashed. They are not allowed to think freely and history is painted in a gory way to them.
Below few lines is an effort against this practice towards reducing rage and violence from our beautiful earth.
On a road less traveled,
Treacherous, steep, winding up high
(They) Have trudged hand in hand
Destination was never nigh.
Those hearts that beat to the same rhythm,
Red blood coursing through veins,
The feelings are so alike,
In elation or in pain.
Syria, Palestine and Kashmir
Boiling in rage and ire,
Only loving embrace of brotherhood
Can save our dear earth from pyre.
Mistakes committed in history,
Should not pronounce the future,
Sensible mind and healing touch
Can only aspire a bright pasture.
No poisoning the mind of our children,
In the name of religion and the Lord,
There must be a way to persuade
And exchange a hug for the sword.
