These daily happenings,
Ail us, sadden us and displease us too.
Reckless riding by the energetic youth,
Often brings tears to every one’s eyes.
Anguishs their parents, siblings,
Friends and relatives.
Lone bread earners and dear ones,
Of the aggrieved parents,
All fetch the same lamentable episodes.
Unbridled speeds and stunt biking,
Adds a casualty with each passing hour.
Fear and shock waves,
Are pouring in all sides.
Our youth instead killing the speed,
Are embracing the death patiently.
Rayees ! Let’s educate the youth,
About blessings and value of our numbered days.
