#IWillAlwaysRemember by Aprajita Bajaj

The foreboding sirens of the ambulances,
The wailing of mothers,
The cries of despair ,
The helplessness of it all ;
The dwarfs of constant sorrow standing tall ……

Rushing for help
Catching a breath
Breaking a sweat
Vignettes of hope and regret ;
These ghastly encounters with death …

Yes, I will always remember
I shall never let you forget !

This echo of melancholy in the air ,
This shrugging of responsibility ,
This callousness towards suffering ,
This dread ;
This scare ……

Helping hands,
Emergency plans ,
Transient lifespans ,
Grieving Souls ,
Resilient woman and Man ….

Yes , I will always remember
I shall never let you forget !

This Pandemic
This chaos
This mayhem
This loss

This regime’s bigotry
This Ruler’s apathy
Common man bearing the brunt ,
Chanting a prayer , fingers crossed ….

Salute to the ones holding the fort
For now this is our reality , our report !

Come on ; let us bridge this gap ,
Let us not give up , not as yet ….
Scream in the pillow , Cry in the shower ,
Find your outlet , then take a pause and re-set …

Oh! yes I will always remember
I shall never let you forget !
