Human agony, bloodshed and cost of lives

This poem is weaved to disturb you as we stand mute spectators, watching the genocide and atrocity committed against the Palestinians and people of Gaza. This humble post is dedicated to the loss of innocent lives, men and women in Gaza, in the name of politics. I am deeply grieved at the demoniac act committed against humans, including, small children, babies and pregnant women whose lives are torn by ruthless rulers. Let’s join hands and pray for humanity-cum-innocent people.


Cries of desolation as humanity bears the atrocity of an evil world;

O’ evil man! You have no shame of your heinous and sadistic act?

Have you got no heart?

Blood shed,  scattering of corpses, shrieks of babies and killing of lives in the embryo;

Innocent men and women  bearing the brunt of ruthless war mongers and politicians;

A horrible sight for us to witness as an entire populace is massacred in the name of dirty politics;

O! ruler! How can you sleep so peacefully when you carry the burden of innocent lives and children witnessing the gun shots of parents?

The tragedy of small innocent children not playing with toys but seeing bloods scattered all over and weapons destroying civilization;

O! Big powers why are you so silent?

Feeling guilt pangs for destroying the world or being plain hypocrites so that you can rule a divided world!

A world that sees no difference between blood and colored water, where babies are mercilessly abandoned to death in their cradle in a world ruled by demons;

O! monsters in the garb of humans, stop this madness for you shall meet the same fate, your day of judgement is not far way.

Gruesome images playing live in world where bombs are exploding at the whims and fancies of one vile and mad man.

Is the price of human life so cheap?

Bleeding, shivering and hordes of human masses torn apart as they stand helpless and gaping for breath;

The death of civilization that will take ages to restore and wounds that will perhaps never heal;

Bodies, limbs and arms shred apart as souls are suffering excruciating pain;

A human agony at the sight of war-machines and sick drones striking;

One doesn’t need to belong to a particular religion to condemn the human onslaught,

only the heartless can sit unmoved by the tears and cries shed.

O’ World! What have you become?

Biggest power in the world! Are you still hunting terrorists?


Deeply aggrieved at the lost and heartless souls.

Spread love, not war and hatred

  1. “A world that sees no difference between blood and colored water” – it’s a verse that expressed everything I’m feeling. It’s a terrible world we live in…and we, who are not directly affected, go about our lives like nothing has happened only occasionally gasping in horror when gruesome images flash on the television….

  2. Its so awful … You express so well in words what so many people are thinking Vishal…All the losses of innocent lives in that ever lasting conflict… My hearth goes out to them, and the killing of kids … We just dont DO that – kill each others children .. No No! You have a good voice for them, when so many others are just lost for words….

    1. So much angst and we just don’t kill innocent children like that. I am horrified at the hypocrisy and apathy of so many nations..what a shame! Eli! The grim images and cries of helpless mothers and young children is not something that should make up tie our tongues.

  3. “One doesn’t need to belong to a particular religion to condemn the human onslaught,” A friend of mine has updated her profile picture that says..” You don’t need to be a muslim to stand up for Gaza, you just need to be human.”
    words here bleed!

    1. Thank u, Sir. I feel killing should not be allowed in any such cases, especially young children and women. The world should boycott Israel and impose sanctions.

    1. It’s a feeling of angst and wonder how thick blood is. Is it the price of human life? It’s barbaric! The whims and fancy of one person and feel powerless of such hypocrisy of nations who are keeping mum. Israel must face sanctions and be boycotted.

    1. You couldn’t have put it better than that. It’s shame how Ruthless we are to fulfill our instincts by taking lives of innocent people. Animals are better than us.

  4. It is indeed a very disturbing image that you have painted, Vishal! As it should be to most people who care little about religion and politics and more about the massacre of innocent lives!

    1. Sometimes, things need to disturb us at the face of Geo politics being played and apathy when lives are being lost. The fact is we don’t have our heart at the right place and we should look beyond patriotism and be human.

  5. Howdy! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts!
    Keep up the outstanding work!
