A Phoenix Forever

A Phoenix Forever

Twelve bombs and grenades blasted the city
Shedding one leaf of my family tree
You said, “I will heal, I shall rise, don’t pity!”

You paralysed the lifeline, O Monsoon’s fury
Heap of bodies floating around drowned my mind
Shedding one leaf of my family tree

Showing them way to menace, fishermen were kind
Who knew those men would leave the city tainted
Heap of bodies floating around drowned my mind

Hearing about the brutal rape, I fainted
Inside the stony walls, resided the beasts
Who knew those men would leave the city tainted

Embracing the migrants roaming on streets
A cauldron of care you will always win votes
Inside the stony walls, resided the beasts

O Mumbai, to save you, Gods are wearing white coats
I don’t want to helplessly roam, feeling guilty
A cauldron of care, you will always win votes
Please say “I will heal, I shall rise, don’t pity!”
