9/11 - my tribute
Dr.Jawahar Surisetti | 11 Sep 2011
Dr Jawahar Surisetti's tribute to the martyrs of 9/11 and a tribute to world peace
Yesterday we were together, our life and death was the same,
Today we have drawn a line for reasons foolish and lame.
Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand,we have been through life,
Trials-tribulations we faced, struggled through slavery and strife.
What then has happened today that we have turned bitter foes,
We bay for each others blood and added to our cup of woes.
Ashamed I feel when we strip naked in front of the world
And all of them quirk and laugh at the erstwhile land of gold.
Our food is the same, skin alike, blood and ancestors are one.
Gandhi and Jinnah, we have together the battle of freedom won.
Then why our minds go astray and we build the walls of divide.
Time breeds maturity but our chasms of friendship grow wide.
Let not the guns rule and terrorists spill the blood,
We have other things to care like famine and flood.
Lets bind our hands together and sing hand in hand
Today or tomorrow realization will land,
That we have missed many years in hatred and warfare,
When love could change our lives we shied to care and share.
