Requiem Of Annihilation (Updated)

This poem is dedicated to all the innocent Pakhtun civilians who suffered and died in the hands of suicide-bombers. May our dearly beloved rest in peace.

The world descends into chaos
Lives dissipate, shadows burn
Passions of odium run untamed
Becoming numb with avarice
Drunk with rapacious desires
Thirsting for lust
And coveting for power

The zephyr of death lingers
Teasing and tormenting the ill-fated
While surmising the naivety of the devout
Through meaningless promises of the hereafter
Only to fade into a crescendo of nothingness

Hypocrites; is what they are!
Deceiving naïve and feeble minds
To believe that the spirit is immortal
Their zenith of ecstasy
Enforced through self-annihilation
Feeds the bruising darkness of ignorance
As it induces dreamy minds
Compelling them to mélange fantasy with reality
All but to disappear into a sea of oblivion

Delusion has become a way of life
Their mettle is nothing but a fallacy
Life after death is what they crave
A Utopian world filled with taboo pleasures
And exquisite divinity
An existence they yearn to achieve
Through the vicious burden of self-annihilation
While dissipating lives through suffering, cruelty, and repression
Oh! How can one make them understand,
Without being accused of heresy? 

Ah, but to break free from this chimera of darkness
Perhaps it is better to be labeled a heretic
Gratis from the shackles of pandemonium
Than be haunted as a fanatical destroyer of humanity!
