That Hour Has Come... (02)

That Hour Has Come... (02)

2 mins 439 2 mins 439

And that threshold will also witness,

The Apprehensive trials and tribulations entering every household,

And reverential societies decaying morally;

Illegal contacts will increase by time and

The slave women will bear masters' foetus in her womb;

Women will sway in their walk,

And will cause others to incline towards them;

A house will have two incomes

And the wishes shall never be fulfilled

"These are the Signs!"


Bear in mind, O pacifists!

Peace treaties shall be signed more than anything else,

And battles shall be one among the daily life;

Human right abused ones shall never gain justice,

And inevitably blood will flow more than rustling rivers;

Sudden deaths will increase by the time,

And no mercy shall be bequeathed on human lives;

Despite that desire to die will become common,

And killing oneself will be only a way out;

"These are the Signs!"


That Hour will not cast its dreadful shadow unless

Mercy from the time would be taken away and the time shrinks;

The year will be like a month and month like a week,

A week will be shorter than a day,

And the day will pass like an hour,

And the Hour will be like a burning leaf;

"These are the Signs!"


Also one will find Destitute and Barefoot shepherds,

Will immaculately compete in building skyscrapers;

These signs are like beads in a string and when the string is cut,

All of them would spread out everywhere;

Still do the intellectuals wait except that the

Hour should come upon them unexpectedly?

But already there have come most of its indications,

And countdown has already been kicked off!!!
