Same Language

Same language
Same words
Same letters...

Some incite riots against communities!
Some screw up peaceful marriages in families!
Some can make us snore to death!

Some leave them like air and ocean
Not trying to take anything from
Not trying to give anything to
Thinking they have no power!
Not really knowing their power...

All they do is some unconscious consumption
Like that of air and ocean!
