Its been ten year 
Since the last time I felt 
That pain
Pain of rubbing ashes on my chest
Ashes of my dear Indians
Ashes of the believes
" UNITY IN DIVERSITY "
Of all those Millions
Who's life changed that day

Loved one lost ! killed! Left away.

Those were the things I heard about
Read about but never ,ever 
Thought realized about long before that day.


It's been so long
When I walked far far away
from the streets 
That was screamed in red Blood
And now even after ten year
These thoughts agitate me 
Such that I almost forget myself here
Either I am dead , or my watch has stopped


Its been ten year
Since the last time I cried
And now there is nothing
Which I can feel,
Nor anthing which I can fear 
Even my tears have dried
Its been ten year
and now I have walked far far away
