Humanity

How much more simpler and lucid should you be to be understood?

A piece by Mystic Soul

If only you still existed
The old man would get a seat in the always crowded bus
If only you existed
The blind man could still see faith
If only you existed
Girls today wouldn’t fear to go alone in the evenings
If only you existed
There would be no honour killings
If only you existed
There would have been books                                 In the hands of seventeen year olds and not pistols
If only you existed
We’d have pens instead of swords
If only you existed
The newspaper headlines wouldn’t read                         The deadly terror attacks in almost every part of the world
If only you existed
Peshawar school children would still have                 Their friends and teachers instead of terrifying
Memories of their blood stained bodies
If only you still existed
Their hearts wouldn’t be scarred forever
If only you still existed
People would have more faith and less fear
If only you still existed
We would not have to fear about, may be anything at all
If only humans wouldn’t have forgotten you so soon
May be there would be more peace and no hatred
If only you still existed
The voices of souls would be heard more than the explosions
If only you still existed in every soul….
People would understand what having a heart means
If only you still existed dear humanity
The world would be a better place
Though your existence has become rare now                    In most of the human beings
You will come back and hopefully stay forever
Because at least then humans will justify the word “Humanity”
