"Go to sleep, child."

Cease your incessant poring over articles. Stop thinking about it. Mumbai is miles away. You need to continue your life and not get stuck on what happened. Yes, I know it was a horrendous tragedy beyond words, beyond thoughts, beyond all-but you need to move on. You need to take something positive from this and carry on their holy work--not obsess over the terror.

Go to sleep, child.

Let go of the tension, the nerves, the anxiety. Stop avoiding the room you spent all of Thursday night and Friday morning, in. Don't bring in "India" to every conversation. Let it go. Think about other things. There's a whole world out there.

Go to sleep, child.

Build yourself up. Strengthen yourself. Let love take the place of hate. Let care take the place of evil. Focus not on their bad deeds; let your goal be a purely positive one.

Go to sleep, child.

Go, with free will.
To, where you please.
Sleep, in safety.
Child, of parents.

...
I can't sleep, people.

Sleep only to wake up in pain.
