Why? (A Poem)

"Why lay distinction, when we belong to the same organization? Why show hostility, when we belong to the same fraternity?" ~Tabna Shahid

Why lay distinction, when we belong to the same organization?
Why show hostility, when we belong to the same fraternity?
Why bear malice, when we belong to the same genus?
Why portray fear, when we belong to the same streets of cheer?

Why do we shed blood?
Why do we blame the heard?
Why do we hide the crime?
Why do we turn blind?

Why is it that we hold anger?
Why is it that we care no longer?
Why is it that we betray more?
Why is it that we fake all the more?

Why can’t we just answer to these at all?
Why can’t we just finish it once and for all?
Why can’t we just live without the gall?
Why can’t we just have peace after the nightfall?
