Oh Lord, where is that wonderland?

Days are gone, when there were human breathing all around!

Humanity is gone
So is the beauty of nature!
All I find today
Is city on fire – humanity on pyre!

Life is gone
So is the liveliness!
All I find today
Are robots with sheep and goats!

Emotion is gone
So is the meaning of love!
All I find today
Is physical lust and dying trust!

Sacrifice is gone
So is the social bonding!
All I find today
Are selfish relatives and cruel motives!
Oh Lord!
I still wonder if this is all you have
Or still you hold some secret boons
Before, I am laid to grave!
If this is the end of all
Then I wish to recreate
a land of harmony, peace and love,
Where I wish to meet you again!
Among people with love
And smiling with no pain!

Oh Lord,
Grant me strength
To bring our wonderland back,
Where children trek in fairyland!
Where love is passion not lust!
Where prevails the bonding of selflessness
And life blooms with happiness!!!
