A great sorrow that befell man in an eye blink
Nations stood still to adore you
Men in agony and turbulence because of your terror
Great fear you’ve planted in our hearts.
In a melancholic state we’ve hidden ourselves
From the works of your hands
Boredom and loneliness as become our friends
Yet, you don’t seem to care.
United we stand
Divided we fall
Because of you. We only wish to live and want nothing else.
That’s what you’ve given us
A common purpose!!!
Have you seen the tears of a widow who lost her only child?
Have you seen nations in total discomfort?
Have you seen the jobless ones?
Have you seen the ones that might not be to live to see another year?
We won’t give you a way.
We will stop you by staying indoors.
We’ve heard enough death cries.
We want to see our friends and love ones.
