Inhumane Humans

Another girl is swallowed by the demons at the age of just eight!

News, Twitter, Media everyone is filled with rage

Words of anger and outcry for justice tweeted…re-tweeted

This will go on for some days…then what next?

Then again everything will be normal, nothing will change

Shame I feel to be called ‘human’; Co-existing with cold blooded predators

Human feeding on human; killing the humanity day by day

Me too a mute spectator to this brutality; guilty, liable, helpless

This News shall pass till another heinous act

We all are in waiting to be turned into cold blooded predators

Human race would end with no trace of existence left

Maybe then humanity will grow again

And then I will be proud to be called a ‘human’.
