If our hard work is robbed by someone, it is not the most dangerous occurrence;

If a police officer gets hold of us, it is not the most dangerous occurrence;

Even if someone shows disloyalty or if we fall for materialism, it is not considered as a dangerous occurrence;

To be stuck in sleep is definitely a sorrowful experience;

To be silent and to remain in silence is definitely a sorrowful experience;

But not the most dangerous occurrence;

To remain quite admits corruption after knowing the truth is definitely a sorrowful experience;

 To study under the brightness of firefly is definitely a sorrowful experience;

To waste time by doing nothing is definitely a sorrowful experience;

But not the most dangerous occurrence;

The dangerous occurrence in life is to be in silence;

The dangerous occurrence is when you are not feeling the pain for the biased treatment you are facing but silently facing it all;

Doing the same routine everyday of going to work from home and back home in the evening;

But the most dangerous occurrence is the demise of our dreams;

The most dangerous occurrence is when the time in your watch is running but the time in your eyes is still;

The dangerous occurrence is when our eyes become numb even after being the spectator of all the occurrence;

The eyes after becoming numb forgets to kiss the world with passion;

The eyes become astray in the materialistic world;

The eyes get attracted to a path that has lack of interest and sticks to a routine;

The most dangerous is the moon that rises after the war in war fields with numbed bodies;

But still your eyes does not catch hold of it;

The most dangerous occurrence is the song that fights along to reach your ears;

The sound of doors banging outside the hooligans house to scare people;

The most dangerous occurrence is that night which takes away the confidence of the person;

And the night remains so dark that the person becomes so week to fight back;

If our hard work is robbed by someone, it is not the most dangerous occurrence;

If a police officer gets hold of us, it is not the most dangerous occurrence;

Even if someone shows disloyalty or if we fall for materialism, it is not considered as a dangerous occurrence;

But the most dangerous occurrence is the demise of our dreams;
