Childhood Lost In Peshawar by Farhan Akhtar

Weeks after the tragic incident where hundreds of innocent kids were massacred in a Peshawar school attack in Pakistan, Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar pens down a lyrical tribute for the victims.

Childhood Lost In Peshawar by Farhan Akhtar :-

”My brother nudged me on a cold winter morning

He said wake up it’s time to leave

The sun won’t be out another two hours from now

I said let me go back to sleep

He left me there

All nice and warm

Ran off to meet his friend

Bags on their backs

Their smiling faces

Vanished around the bend

Crying out I awoke mother twisting my ear

She said be more like your brother

In my heart how I wished I was their only son

never compared to another

She loved him more

Or so I thought

He was the special one

Her pride her joy

Her golden boy

Her shade in life’s harsh sun

Why couldn’t it be me

Why couldn’t it be me

Writing on lined pages a hundred times over

I’ll remember to go to school

The aching of my hand bringing tears to my eyes

Promised never to play the fool

How could I know

As I sat here

He in the assembly hall

Was unaware the clock struck ten

And guns came over the wall

Why couldn’t it be me

Why couldn’t it be me”
