What Am I?

SAVE KASHMIR FROM CRUEL FORCES.

What Am I?

 

You are human and we are insects.

You are innocents and we are malicious.

You are patriotic and we are disloyal.

You are sane and we are groundless.

You are brave and we are spineless.

You are secular and we are brute.

You are free and we are imprisoned in your cage.

You kill us but we should be silent.

You suffocate us yet we are your integral part.

You stole our identity with utter deceit and yet you are a democracy.

You starved us to death for 82 days yet you claim Kashmir is calm.

You are inhuman but you call us rebels.

You vomit venom yet you consider us alive.

You ridicule our imprisonment and want us to embrace you.

You celebrate our slavery and you want us to appreciate.

In the guise of secularism, you are the immoral colonizers.

O’ the world tell me,  who am I?

Hello, Sumera,

How are you doing? Thank you for sharing with us another powerful poem of yours. I hope this, too, could be published in India’s newspapers.

Dear Karen,

Indian Newspapers will never publish my poems. Indian media is bullshit and you know whosoever questions or writes against their fascist regime, they cancel their Passports. It has been more than a year and I can't travel to Kashmir either. I am at the risk of losing my Passport. I don't want to be caged. Somebody should be free to write.

Your words should be read. Maybe at the right time, dear. Maybe it's better this way that you are indeed free to express your thoughts into writing. Keep it up, dear. Take care always.
