Not time

it is
not time
to lose
love

to one another

it is
not time
to mourn
over

bodies,
dead and hurting

और
कब तक
यह
चलेगा?

it is not time

to accept
fear
terror
pain

it is not time

to fight
back
to bleed
in

the name of revenge.

not time
to
hold grudges
over

grudges of the past

not time
लड़ने
झगड़ने
to make

war

perpetrate
more
pain
than

joy

it is
not time
to gain
from

another’s pain

it
bleeds
tears
and

old wounds have come
open

anew
they
breed
memories

of the past

now
imposed
onto
the present

it.is.not.time.

पल पल
बीता हुआ
कल
आज

we have lost.

the battle
to love
to breathe
in harmony

a thousand beating hearts

silenced
by
the
boom

a gunshot,
fired point blank

10
20
100000
uncountable

it is never time

to let go
to accept
to
create

boundaries that
never existed

maybe
it is
time
to

spread the love
प्यार
காதல்

everywhere
across
the
seven seas

to places that are
invisible to the

human eye
unidentified
on a
map

to them all

it is
time we
pulled
closer

than pushed away

breathe
in
and
grasp

the fact that

7 billion
a species
from nothing
has
come this far

it is not time to devolve

instead
take a
step back
and note

you are one
among these
many

diverse
different
beautiful
healthy
breathing
caring
souls.

you weren’t born into
a void

the bigger
picture
has you

in it.

help
keep it
together
it is

time we acknowledged
our collective
energy

power;
it takes
more than
one hand

to clap
loud and clear

in this
big
dark
but
healing
world

it is time
we facilitated

the healing
and
stopped
the hurting

it is time.
