    trail of conscience

    You turn on the television
    A footage of war
    Is being played out without indignation
    You changed the channel
    Where a fierce debates on politics is raging
    With vicious personal attacks

    You open your phone for a calm semblance
    There are fake news on every media platforms
    You read the newspapers
    There's rape, and murder in the marketplace
    You log in the news websites
    Articles on corruption and crumbling economy
    Are featured on the home page

    Negativity is showcased with great pomp
    Falsehood is peddled as authentic news
    We are cornered
    We are concerned

    You covered your face
    With a sense of guilt
    And silently light a candle
    Wishing for a trail of conscience
