Ashamed Sun


Raghab Nepal

Early morning when the sun comes up,

And to its misery finds the earth burning.

Hears the news of bomb-blasts in the night.

Sun feels ashamed and tries to hide.

It calls the cloud to cover it,

And remembers the earth which used to be good.

Hiding from a corner, moon calls the sun,

Tells of horrifying killings that went before the dawn.

Sun melts in tears but truth is truth.

It loves not to shine today, and it seems to brood.

The blame is on us my brothers, he says,

Love and peace lies only in few prayers today.
