The lights flashed to darkness,
Red festooned the streets.
The fire inside their souls, igniting with hatred
Blazed into an inferno, turning the
Beats of music to shots of gun,
The hoots to screams,
The dance to flee,
The happy cheers
To unprecedented fears.
The weekend chatter to panic, yelps of pain.
Blood, it rained.
They let the flames of vengeance, burn down the city.
Made them, the unblemished,
Pay the price for something they never bought,
Certainly, hell, is the place for them to rot.
They staged the city of love, as it were a display of unreasonable hatred.
The curtains must be drawn, Justice must be served.
They were none other than humans, killing fellow humans.
If this is what humans are,
I lament at being one.
When did we mutate to savages? Or cannibals, must I say?
One after the other, the world seems to be crashing.
Is this the fraternity we yearn for?
The liberty we strive for?
The equality we dream of?
But, we won’t hang our heads down with fear,
We won’t step down with tears.
For undivided we stand,
Not as french,
Not as black, not as white,
But. As humans.
We seek harmony, we seek peace, we dream of universal ceasefire.
No vengeance, No spite, No hatred, no riot.
We stand as not a city of love,
But, as a world, of love.
Let there be peace. Let’s become humans. Again.
