All across the world when the night arrives
on this special day we say bye together and welcome new lights.
The nights are not darker its full of bright lights
Some are man made, some are natural
to welcome the happy times.
With the hopes that this year will be lucky for all
and will bring peace and prosperity never before
We celebrate togetherness and dance/drink away fears all night.
But somewhere between all this
There are lives which has no change
There are people whose day and night are still same
There are families struggling to get a bread even today
There are wives waiting for their husbands who are marching at the end
There are children who are waiting for their parents to be back home sooner
Lonely parents in wait of their loved ones.
Why the pyramid is so skewed
Why there is no single day when all are one and have equal rights?
A sudden wish came to my mind
Today I will not dance away my fears in this artificial lights.
I will make a difference by helping few children celebrate this day with their parents on time
I will make a difference by caring for those elders who many not see tomorrow's light
I will make a difference in my attitude and way of living
I will make a difference to those who potentially never get a chance to be the one they want
I will make a difference to myself and then may be one day the world will celebrate together
As one entity, as one human being and as one whole unit which we should be.
The bells of new year will ring and slow down
But the music this difference will make remains forever in our heart.
