I sat here and waited for harmony to come.
I saw them plead for justice, a justice that would never come.
for who could ever reverse what was done?
They asked, they begged, they cried and prayed
for someone to just hear, to lift that fog away.
For you, just another news for the day
But for them, their whole world was torn away.
The sound of little feet, pitter patter
The sound of a child saying “I am hungry mother.”
They still wait for this sound to come after mid day.
A young man smiling, at his mother
heading for school, for the day, and, forever
Its all gone now, they have snatched it away.
the fog that settled down, a fog that will forever stay.
In the memory of the 133 innocent children and staff massacred in the Peshawar School attack by terrorists on December 16, 2014.
The day humanity saw hell on Earth.
