This is a tribute to all the innocent brave little students, who lost their lives in the Peshawar Attack (16 December,2014)
So curious were these little gems,
They were the Nation’s stem,
The last time, their mothers kissed them,
Because some didn’t return from the mayhem.
To fulfill their sparkling dreams,
School went those little streams,
But we heard their scary screams,
And saw red bloodstreams.
The books looked all red,
Everyone thought ink has spread,
But seeing the bodies dead,
We knew it was blood instead.
Though small but they were strong,
Suffer could they for how long?
Education, to them it belongs!
Were they doing something wrong?
How could you even think of doing it?
Those innocent souls,how could you hit?
Those bright dreams, how could you slit?
Don’t you have feelings? Not little bit?
You were a coward, they were brave,
Like soldiers, did they behave,
For us, their lives they gave,
“Repent!” For one day you’ll be enslaved!
For the students, we all pray,
Happiness they may see through their way,
We’ll never forget this agonizing day,
For the sad memories will always stay.
