Life Goes On…

The headline read,
“Young girl raped and killed”.
And the next moment I saw,
A little girl prancing in the rain on street.

It was difficult to decide
If to feel happy for the little girl
Or let my joy die.

In the world of mortals
Where fate and will collide,
A lot of unwanted things
Happen in broad daylight.

I am perplexed to call it,
‘Detachment’ or ‘Indifference’,
Because I find myself
Helpless, a lot of times.

In the grind of our life
Nonchalantly, we carry on,
While some live and others die.
