Darkness envelopes everywhere

Hearts are filled with despair

Hands try to feel each other

Eyes search for near and dear!

Prayers are said to no avail

Children cry- writhing in pain

With a strange numbness in every part

The soul is restless in every heart!

A ray of light suddenly emerged

And touched the heart of every sinner

Purifying it with love and truth.

Imprinting in it certain values!

Down went the sinners on their knees

With folded hands and bated breath

Awaited the voice of PEACE

To knock some sense into their head!

“Years of suffering shall come to an end

when days and nights you shall spend

doing a good for every sin

without making any din!”

A single ray of hope at last

Brought an end to the fast

Breaking the world filled with miseries

Saving everybody’s destiny!
