Then and now // Safa.F Aamir

I was a kid then and now,
Fighting a fear in sun and snow,
Imagining a universe that doesn’t exist, 
Sobbing beside my parent’s cist.

The beautiful sceneries sliding inside my head,
The memories which were beautiful but all dead, 
The glimpses of that dad’s care and mom’s love conveying myself into a rage,
That I am a hopeless kid & stuck in an orphanage.

Then my life was a blossom & now it’s coloured blue,
The war bulldozed everything without giving us the clue,
The cries of babies,the massacre of life full of horrible sights,
Now there is no hope in days and peace at night.

I still remember the scene when the bomb hit our roof,
My mum was praying & dad was busy watering the leaves,
After that there was a bloomy sound and it was all pitch black,
When I open my eyes I was in stretcher & rusty blood was all over my white shirt sleeves.

Then it was a happy journey, 
Now it is a suffering odyssey,
Then it was a colourful rainbow,
Now it is all grey,
I don’t know how war help them to live in peaceful alley.

I was a kid then and now,
Fighting a fear in sun and snow,
Imagining a universe that doesn’t exist,
Sobbing besides my parent’s cist.
