The inhuman attack on innocent children of Army Public School in Peshawar has shaken up something in each one of us. If not, there is something inherently wrong with us.

And that's precisely the point noted lyricist, Prasoon Joshi, so beautifully drives home in this heart-breaking poem, penned by him for Hindustan Times .

Jab bachpan tumhari godh mein aaney se katrane lage

Jab maa ki kokh se jhankti zindagi bahar aaney se ghabrane lage

Samjho kuch ghalat hai

Jab talwarein phoolon par zor aazmane lagein

Jab masoom ankhon mein khauf nazar aane lage

Samjho kuch ghalat hai

Jab oas ki boondon ko hatheliyon pe nahin hathiyaron ki nok par theherna ho

Jab nanhe nanhe talwon ko aag se guzarna ho

Samjho kuch ghalat hai

Jab kilkariyan sahem jayein

Jab totli boliyan khamosh ho jayein

Samjho kuch ghalat hai

Kuch nahin bahut kuch ghalat hai

Kyonki zor se barish honi chahiye thi

Poori duniya mein

Har jagah tapakne chahiye the aansoo

Rona chahiye tha upar wale ko aasman se

phoot phoot kar

Sharm se jhukni chahiye thi insaani sabhyata ki gardanein

Shok nahin soch ka waqt hai

Matam nahin sawalon ka waqt hai

Agar iske baad bhi sar utha kar khada ho sakta hai insaan

Samjho ki kuch ghalat hai

Let's not let this black day in the history of humankind melt into oblivion. Let's not be resilient as always.
